This is the basic official certification form and can be proof of age, relationship,
marriage, divorce and death. It can contain information about one person or a man
and his immediate family. There are specific columns for each person's name, parents,
date and place of birth, religion and the date he was entered in the record. The relationship
of the family members to the head of the household is shown if requested.
If an individual's record is transferred to another locality (as when a woman marries),
the information on the original census record is transferred. Thus, a married woman's
record may show a recordation date before the marriage date, or the transfer date
may also be shown as the registration date. If the original registration date is not
shown and is needed, the nufus official at the place of original residence should
be contacted for the original registration date.
