Hi Lynette & Tombi

Not too sure if I know all re family research, but I'm glad to hear of your
success.
Here's another experiment that works for me.

Go to www.google.com [South Africa is www.google.co.za ]
Type your search all in lower case.

"wolff"+"rootsweb"+"za" [za defines your search to South Africa]
You can also remove the za if you want to look further than the boundaries
of South Africa.

Have just tried it and there are 1,220 hits. [za], - 48,300 if you remove
za.
What is so helpful is that you can read the detail of the hit and can see if
the data is relevant or not.
Saves a lot of time.

Have fun!

Best wishes
Becky
