No Birth Certificate? No Problem!

Takes a look at the wide variety of primary and secondary sources to determine when a person was born and who were their parents if a birth certificate is not available or can't be found. Reviews a variety of records to help determine the parents, the birth date, and the birth location. Several case studies are included. A good Problem Solving program.

Based upon his article Birth Records and Alternatives in Heritage Quest Magazine, Issue #112 - Winter 2004/2005.
