When searching for a name which may have more than one spelling, try searching for just that part which is usually the same in both forms, for instance MEINTJES | MEINTJIES: search for MEINTJ,  for VAN RENSBURG | JANSE VAN RENSBURG: search for RENSBURG,  for MACALLISTER | MCALLISTER | MC ALLISTER: search for ALLISTER, for  VAN DER MERWE | V.D.MERWE: search for MERWE.

To find Du Plessis in the Tulbagh registers, for instance, where the spelling is very imaginative indeed, try searching for just  DU PL - to find all Koopmans and Coopmans, search on  OOPMAN - remember too that in the 18th and 19th centuries the letter Y was usuall spelled IJ in registers compiled in Dutch, SNIJMAN rather than SNYMAN.
