Welcome To The United States of America, INC. - Your Birth Certificate
Ever Wonder why having that Birth Certificate was so important? Why a Certified Certificate of Live Birth from the Hospital wasn't sufficient enough? I didn't have a Birth Certificate until I was 12 years old, when suddenly it was required to play BobbySox, even after already joining the previous year. Some time in the 1980's, it was required that you have a Social Security Number for your children in order to claim them on your taxes. Of course, a Birth Certificate is required to obtain an SSN.
