I am seeking information about my birth in Zambia (Northern Rhodesia as it was then). My birth certificate says I was born Catherine Ann on February 16th 1958 at Nchanga Hospital, Chingola, Zambia, to Muriel (nee Gundry) and Richard Millar-Smith. My father was an Assistant District Commissioner and had changed his name by deed poll from Smith. He had previously served with the Cameron Highlanders during WWII. I was brought up as an only child; we initially lived in Kitwe, then moved to Solwezi where I was home-educated, and left Africa for Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1965. Memories from that time have always made we question whether I was adopted and may have had siblings. Any details, information or access to records will be gratefully received. Many thanks.
