Zimbabwe was formerly known as Southern Rhodesia and became independent from Great Britain on April 18, 1980. Even though civil registration was established in 1890 it did not become mandatory until after independence. Birth registration began in 1891 and death registration in 1904. Birth and death registrations did not include African tribal members until 1963. <ref name="FS Zimbabwe">FamilySearch, [https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Zimbabwe,_Death_Records_-_FamilySearch_Historical_Records Zimbabwe, Death Records - FamilySearch Historical Records], (accessed 30 May 2020)</ref>
