Re: Barack Huessin Obama II Birth Records

In Reply to: Re: Barack Huessin Obama II Birth Records by Jerry Blaylock of 28

For many weeks as a Genealogist, I’ve looked closely at and analyzed two birth certificates said to prove that Mr. Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii, emailed to me by Jerry Blaylock a fellow Genealogist, and have determined that neither are Birth Certificates of our President Barack Obama, born August 4th, 1961. One of the copies has the name of the hospital in Kenya that Obama was "reportedly born", as Coast Province General Hospital, and the other as Coast General Hospital. One of the so-called Kenyan birth certificates has the wrong year of his father's birth, and his mother or father signed neither. The person in the center of this controversy states he went to Kenya and brought back copies, and posted a copy of the Kenyan birth certificate purportedly belonging to Obama on the Internet. He is supported and represented by a lawyer, and known "Birther" (a term used for Americans who believe Mr. Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii).

There are three hospitals with similar names, they are Coast General Hospital at Mombasa (the worst), Coast Province General Hospital (the best) at Mombasa, and Coast Provincial Hospital, according to the Kenya National Assembly Official Record, May 7, 1965, pgs 2013- 2014 (Oral Answers), Question No. 2058, Coast General Hospital Improvement.

Below is information obtained from two Birth Certificates emailed to me in April 2011 that purportedly proved Mr. Obama was born in Kenya. Copy (A) has a stamped impression on the left that possibly reads, “…Nigeria Chief Administrator”, and the name or place written above that could be, Aelton or Helton or Hilton and the word or last name of Maganga or Magonga?

His parents met while both were attending the East-West Center of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where his father was enrolled as a foreign student. When Barack Obama was two years old, his parents divorced and his father moved to Massachusetts to continue his education before returning to Kenya.
