Am after some help. I need a copy of my birth certificate. I was born in hwange and the easiest way that the embassy says in uk is to have some request it from zim. If anyone can help by getting me some information from that side it would be much appreciated. Many thanks

Hi Shane

I would suspect you have picked up on the new link http://www.bunnyhop.co.za/zimbabwe.htm

Thank you to the person who posted the link to familysearch Zimbabwe Civil registration records. I found my great uncle's death from 1971. I would also like to see his death notice but I cannot find it amongst the records. Did everyone have a 'death notice'? His D.R was 1397/71 so I assumed his death notice would have the same number but they do not seem to go up that high. His death was registered 1st October 1971. Name: Edward John Young. Am I looking for the record in the wrong way?

Hello Ken,
 
  Yes, my researcher is getting every document he can, including wills, estates, birth, death, and marriage certificates, government compensation, military medal rolls...etc. Pretty much, any legal document with our family's name on it, he is getting.
   If you would like information about him, please send me a private message off list. Thanks.
   Yes, it is very sad to hear how things are, especially when I tell our relatives' descendants, who were all pioneers and lived there from 1894 to 1979. Now all that is left is some really good memories (and now with our researcher, some documents to go along with that. :))


Regards,
Stephanie

HI Stephanie - not sure how to contact you direct via this forum but am looking for information regarding your researcher.

cheers
Ange

I don't know if this will come out as a private message. Please can you help me with the Researchers contact details. I am desperate
Thank you Sharon.

Hi
If anybody has a contact email address for anybody who might be able to search for and obtain a copy of a marriage certificate for me from 1967 in Harare (Salisbury) would they kindly just drop me an message.
I desperately need it for a citizenship application for my granddaughter.
I haven't had any luck trying to find anybody myself and I'm sure there must be somebody there who would be glad of some remuneration for doing so.
Thanks very much.
Richard
