Ingham County Birth Certificate
Storage of important documents is important. As stated above, never leave the original in your home. It is safer in a fire-proof, damage-proof safe deposit box and less prone to theft as well. Guard your identification papers carefully in all cases, and lessen the risk of having your identity stolen. Obtain an official copy of all of your important documents, safeguarding them all in the aforementioned safe deposit box.
Your birth certificate has specific information about you. It shows where you were born, when you were born, your nationality, weight at birth, and even the time of your birth. It shows your legal name at birth, and in many cases, the names of your mother and father, and helps show lineage. Many birth records also have another identification number, not your national insurance number assigned to them.
