You should visit the Ancestry24 learning site, before it closes in in 2 days.http://ancestry24.com/learning-centre/

Copies of certain records can be requested via the EGGSA web site (http://www.eggsa.org/sales/eshop_e_dc.htm
), or via private local genealogy researchers in SA (http://www.national.archives.gov.za/NARS%20DMLIB%208372%20Ma...
), or you can go along yourself if you live in SA.
