Looking for Ian Young

To Whom It May Concern:

In the course of researching my family tree, I have learned that one member, and her husband, lived in Zimbabwe.  I have reason to believe members of the family still live in or near Bulawayo.

The relatives in question are Annie Georgina (nee Holmes) and her husband Charles Newton Dodd.  Both of these people were born in Yorkshire, England. As early as 1912, I believe they emigrated to South Africa.  Sometime after that, they came to live in Bulawayo, where Charles worked as a grocer. He died there in January of 1941. According to his death certificate, he had a will, registered as #7115.  Annie Georgina died in Umtali in 1953. Her will is #13219. 

The Dodds had a daughter named Alice May.  Between 1941 and 1953, she married Ian Young.  They had a son, but I do not know his name.

I know there is not much information to work with, I would like to know if there are any resources available that might help me learn more about them, the nature of their business, or anything about their family:  city directories, phone books, or such like.
