Ask the claimant to submit a civil birth record.
Evaluate it as explained in GN 00307.950B.
Ask the FSP (as explained in GN 00904.220) to contact the civil authorities and determine the date and basis on which the record
was established if there is a question about the recordation date of a civil record.
Generally, do not ask a claimant living outside Croatia or Slovenia to get a religious
record since religious authorities do not respond promptly to requests from abroad.
Refer to the, Office of International Programs (by Form OF-41, Routing and Transmittal
Slip, or similar form) any case in which the FSP is unable to assist and its assistance/information
is material to the decision in that claim. Explain fully the issue involved.
