    I love Google, one of my fave sayings is just Google it, I often just put in peoples names and see what comes up, (thanks for the inverted comma tip by the way didn't know that) and have found all sorts, my cousin's christening came up, even she didn't know the details, it is one of the many fascinating tools helping in our research for info on our families

    Hello Sue
    To add to your sound tips "John Davies"+South Africa (or any relevant country, place, town, etc) will narrow the search even further. Also don't forget to search "Books" and "Scholar" (under "More"). Different results from the general search crop up frequently.

    Google ran a Power Searching MOOC a while back, all the videos should be available at https://www.powersearchingwithgoogle.com/ which you might find useful.

    Advanced Search lets you type in a Top Level Domain (like .co.uk) in the "Search within site of domain" box to restrict results.
