Birth Certificates: A birth record contains information about the birth of an individual. On a birth record, you can usually find the mother's full maiden name and the father's full name, the name of the baby, the date of the birth, and county where the birth took place. When submitting a birth certificate with your passport application, it must have both parents' names on the birth certificate. State issued birth certificates without the parents' names cannot be submitted.
Death Records: Also known as medical certificate of the cause of death (MCCD), this is a document issued by a government official such as a registrar of vital statistics that declares the date, location and cause of a person's death.
Divorce Certificates: The divorce certificate contains basic information about the husband and wife, and the date and place the marriage ended. Certified copies of a Divorce Certificate are official copies issued on the State or County level. Since 1804, Divorce Records have been kept in the Prothonotary's Office in the county where the divorce was granted. In addition, local newspapers frequently published notices of divorce actions.
