I started researching my family in south Africa in 1998. This was the reply I received from the Department for Home Affairs.
Official Registration of Births,Marriages and Deaths commenced in the different Provinces as follows-
                               Births               Marriages         Deaths
Cape Province       1895                 1700                 1895
Natal                       1868                 1869                 1888
Transvaal                 1901                 1870                 1901
Orange Free State    1903                 1848                 1903
My father was born 1900 in the Transvaal and I never obtained his Birth Certificate.
Registers in the former South West Africa since March 1978 kept by the Namibian Authorities.
