Copy of Namibia birth certificate 1934?
« on: Saturday 30 December 23 02:06 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to obtain a birth certificate or better still copy of original registration for genealogy information only. Have birth date and place 08 Jan 1934, Warmbad, Karas, Namibia.
We are trying to find out who our great grandfathers and his wife's families are and where they originated from. Any tips would be greatly received!  Thanks in advance.  Suzy.

As Namibia was a South Africa Protectorate at the time the information may be in the Cape Town archives, you would need to apply to them to verify that.

Thank you so much for your help! 
I omitted to tell you I am in Australia, creating the difficulty in finding ways to locate information.
Again, thank you it is very much appreciated!  Suzy.
