You can do your own research at the Archives

Access to the archives is free. Visitors are asked to sign a register at the front desk in the reception hall, which leads on to the reading room, where archives can be viewed.
Archives that date back less than 20 years need permission from the Provincial Archivist for consultation. Applications for permission should be made in writing to the Head of the Repository.
Online Searches: The archives can be searched online at the website of the National Archives and Records Service of South Africa. 
Paper-Based Searches: Typescript inventories of arranged archival groups and collections of non-public records are available in the reading room.
