I'm also looking for records from Malawi and came across this website (http://travel.state.gov/reciprocity/Country%20Folder/M/Malaw...
We have written to the address listed for death certificates but haven't heard back from the Registrar General yet.
We're looking for records of an old friend, a tribal man called Nelson from northern Malawi whom my husband knew in the 1950s in Johannesburg, but we're not sure how lucky we'll be.
He just disappeared one day saying he was going home.
I'll let you know if we get a reply from the Registrar General.
All the best,
