Tips for Searching
- Search in all sections because multiple records exist.
- Do not use special characters i.e.: use Francois not François.
- Try shortening search criteria to allow for alternate spelling eg: for Rennie and Renny try searching for ‘Ren’ or ‘Renn’
- Try alternate spelling eg: ‘Beach’ and ‘Beech’ also ‘MacDonald’ and ‘McDonald’
- Date of death search in the Rhodesian Roll of Honour section must be formatted in this manner 22/07/1977 if you are searching on 22 July 1977.
- You can also search on date of death for a particular day in history eg: if you put 22/07 you will get all deaths recorded on 22 July covering all years on record.
- A number of dates of death are unknown, therefore to search for these enter Unknown in the date of death search field and press search.
- Make use of documents in the Keys to Abbreviations
