Windhoek Birth records
« on: Monday 09 March 20 14:40 GMT (UK) »
Hi I'm trying to find birth records for Windhoek, SWA between 1918 and 1937. Any ideas other than DRK?

Hi there
Thank you so much. I did suspect that the deep recess of Home Affairs might be my only hope. I did read that some documents had been handed back to Namibia in a large book/folder? I'm guessing this is only actually available in Windhoek itself? Any newspapers I could access from the 1930's would be great but I cannot seem to find from this time period/ SWA.

FamilySearch has quite a lot of coverage of the region.
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/location/1927034?region=Namibia
Scroll down and there is a list of resources.
Don't know if they may help.

Thanks Bev, I've pretty much exhausted Family search etc. Was hoping someone would know if miraculously Namibia had digitised these Birth records.
