View Diary: Do you have your birth certificate? (250 comments)

  •  my grandfather never had a birth certificate (7+ / 0-)

    they did not keep very accurate records of the home births of black babies in that part of Virginia when he was born

    so he never had a birth certificate and was not actually certain of his birth day.  If he were still alive now and had to come up with all this paperwork, he could not.

    of course, if he were still alive now, he'd be 117 years old :-D

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
