I am really sorry you are having so much trouble getting what you need. Each one of the family history centers should have a phone number and a listing of when they are open...it's on www.familysearch.org?
I am an American who has worked in a family history center there for many years. We had posted hours and pretty much stuck to the schedule unless there was a big snowstorm that prevented us from being there. Also we had a telephone listed on the website and in the telephone book that had a message machine attached to tell you what hours we were open when we were not there to answer the phone ourselves. I am currently living in Paraguay, but even here the FH centers have regular hours and telephone numbers etc.
I would have looked the info up for you but I was not sure which FH center you were trying to reach--is Gauteng or Natal in Australia?
You can also look up the catalog of the main library in Salt Lake City on the same website, www.familysearch.org to see if the records you want have been filmed before you drive a long distance to the center.

Clear DayHi All,
If returned once again from a very fruitless trip to the local Family
History centre............it's a 60km round trip (now ) in sweltering hot
car and I've done it that many times in the past 3 months that I've lost
count. The place is totally deserted. Believe it or not every time I go
some-one says (Gardeners, Cleaners, local genealogy society) I should've
been there another day or another time.
Grrrr I give up!
Please can anyone help me ...........Big PLEASE?
I'm looking for a birth registration for Norman Frederick JONES born abt
Benoni Magistrate courts between Sept 1930 and Aug 1931 for
William TAYLOR b 1907 and divorcee Martha Maria RORICH born ROLLINSON b 1902
It has been suggested to me that I order the films from Utah but with no how
and where to look at them it wouldn't be much good.
Please if anyone is going to Family History Centres in Gauteng or Natal and
you can help..............Gosh! It would be mightily appreciated
