State Of Idaho Birth Certificates
It is better to have a birth certificate copy, because this copy can be more easily replaced in the event of a loss. If for some reason a child needs their certificate to enroll in some type of youth sports, it is easier to breathe knowing that a copy is more easily obtained than an irreplaceable original.
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.
