Re: Birth certificate

If you go to Graham in person, they might have an answer for you. I can tell you that if you ever apply for a passport or for SS benefits, you will have to have one. My aunt didn't have one and there were no records of her birth. She had to get sworn statements from people who were alive and present at her birth (or came shortly there after). It was not easy when she was 65, so I am sure her suggestion would be to get an official one now while your mother and others can vouch for your date and place of birth.
