The Birth Certificate
The birth certificate is an important piece of paper that documents the details of the birth of a newborn. This may refer to the original document or a certified true copy.
Churches were responsible for registering births in the olden times. Throughout history , some people were using Birth certificates for the purposes of easier tax collections. Also, manpower available for military forces. Countries who practiced this were Persia, Rome, Greece, Egypt and China.
Furthermore, in 1853, the United Kingdom was the first country to regulate registration of births through government agencies.
A government agency is responsible for the safekeeping of birth certificates and the issuance of certified copies when requested. These copies are a usual necessity if you want to access government benefits. Also, file taxes, apply for a passport, get a police clearance, enroll in school, apply for a marriage certificate etc.
