The National Archives of South Africa has a new site. The old site is
still active but only the new site will be updated. The new site has
some quirky features and requires a bit of trial and error. As before
it lacks a Soundex facility so one has to play around and be a bit
creative especially with surname variant spellings.

Home page https://www.nationalarchives.gov.za/
Then go to collections and the drop down menu.

https://www.nationalarchives.gov.za/search-the-collections

There is a different method of searching, Put the
surname first then a comma followed by the first names.
There is no way to set a date parameter.
The old site is still available at
