Re: Birth Certificates for Identification

The OK Vital Statistics office can be uncooperative. I've had personal experience with that. It took me 2-3 years to get my grandmother's birth certificate. They kept rejecting my request, saying the information did not match. I tried two different possible maiden names for my great grandmother (her parents were not married). No match. I finally got one after my sister found a copy of my grandmother's birth certificate. I sent the request with the (delayed) certificate's number and date. The problem? I had included my great grandmother's middle name; it is not used on the birth certificate.
