Hi Lynn

I wish it was that simple -- this is what I get at
http://www.jhbcityparks.com/cemeteries/(which only reads "search", not
"search deceased" on the page I see before me):

Search Results for: Brady

No results were found

I've tried it over and over, with Brixton, with the year -- zilch, zip. I've
even tried typing in random surnames that came to mind, including Enoch
Sontonga (composer of our national anthem), whom I know for sure is buried
in Braamfontein, and all I get is press releases. I've clicked through every
single page link in the left-hand menu. I've gone back to the Home page to
see if there are other links. I've tried googling with a variety of search
parameters on both google.com and google.co.za.

My computer is a little over a year old, an XP with MS Windows 5.1, so it's
not as if my browser is too old to handle newer Internet functions.

Frankly, I'm stymied!

Maureen
