Rhodesia - then where?
« on: Friday 08 July 11 21:19 BST (UK) »
Charles Torrance COLEMAN emigrated from the UK about 1900 +/- to Umtali, now Mutare in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. He worked at a store, perhaps Meikle's, but I don't know where he went. He is not on the Death Records, so may well have moved elsewhere. Where should I look next. Are there WW1 records for Rhodesia? Suggestions welcome.
