(birth certificate)(from elsewhere)
I rec’d one of the early copies of the pdf, along with a request to review it, and the cuts and pastes were still visible, (pdf’s store revision history just like word documents) and it was obvious that the background was added to the xerox copy afterward as an under-layer. It was a clumsy photocopy, cut, and paste job with an artificial background. There is good reason the original is gone (destroyed). My understanding, and the best explanation I have seen so far, is that data was copied and pasted from other certificates in the same hand in order to replace the uncomfortable data. I probably have it somewhere on an old hard drive, if I went looking for it. So as far as I know it was the work of a clumsy forger. I don’t even think it’s open to question.
