I really must add my thanks to this one.

I had a name I knew absolutely nothing about which I got from his fathers death notice.  Didn't even know what year he was born and voila have now found a marriage for him!

Fantastic that has made my day  :)

Added have found two more from the same family with extra details. 

No parents name shown on these certificates is that usual?

What a fantastic site! So easy to use and rich in content. Only one marriage certificate I couldn't find but I found my Gran's sister. I was beginning to think she didn't exist so many, many thanks! Hope you get better soon (I see the transcriber has not been well). :)

So thrilled when I read that marriage details are available for Natal.   Especially delighted to find my husband's father's sister - okay, his aunt!! - because we had absolutely no info on her bar her name, and the year she died.   I had a name for her husband, which turned out to be completely wrong anyway, so now all that is sorted.   Thanks so much.

I have another question.   When do you think we'll be able to access the records from the Churches in the Transvaal?   I tried, but all I ended up with was a black screen.  I'm desperately trying to find information on my dad's side of the family.   Also, births from the old Orange River Colony, particularly Bloem.

Thanks again, you're a star.   :)

Had another browse on family search yesterday and found baptisms for 4 children I never knew about before.  Not only that but you can view and print the actual image brilliant.  Love this site  :)
