Yes. This is not the official birth record. I was born in Elizabeth and have a
certificate of birth (with seal and all) which I believe was issued by the hospital
where I was born. I guess this was the practice in the State of New Jersey. When I
needed my birth certificate for marriage (out of state), the certificate was not
accepted. I needed to present the full birth record issued by the city.
