As far as I can see, Zambia was not able to provide Birth
Certificates for people born before 1973 when compulsory registration
came in. I found a site of the Embassy in Sweden which provided only
for obtaining documents for people born since then, not before, so I
suppose that initially they didn't keep any records and it took that
long after self-government to get a records system set up.
