Oregon State Birth Certificate
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.
There are other reasons why you might need a certificate as well, such as genealogy research or background checks. It gives you vital information about an individual such as the name of the baby born, the full names of the parents, birth date and birth place. Some birth certificates provide other information as well, like the physical addresses and birthplaces of the parents. This information can help you learn a lot about an individual you are researching.
