Computer generated copies on bank note paper with an embossed seal have been issued
since 01/85. Basket weave safety paper (green paper stock) was used 1978 through 1984
and for two unknown months in 1985. Some certifications issued prior to 1985 may have
been issued on bank note paper. A certified photographic copy is issued upon request.
Wallet-sized birth registration cards were first issued in 1952 on light blue safety
paper with dark blue print and laminated in plastic. After 11/27/78, the card was
issued on bank note style paper and not laminated. The State has no prohibition against
the laminating of the current wallet-sized birth registration cards.
Valid certificates similar to those issued by the State may be issued by a local registrar
or county clerk.
