After having spent (wasted?) nearly a year in the trenches of Birthistan, I decided several months ago to "retire" and move on, save for dropping by here once in a while to keep in touch with some of the friends I'd made here.

And then yesterday this Kenyan birth certificate thing seemed to explode like Krakatoa on the Internet.

It was claims about Obama's Hawaiian certificate being a forgery that suckered me into all this stuff last summer, and I guess I must still be a sucker for a good birth certificate story because I decided to look into this one.

I wanted to see if I could find any images of similar documents from Kenya around the same time period that could be compared to the certificate on the web. I spent several hours with Google image search on that before I decided to broaden my search outside of Kenya-specific documents.

It was some time later that I finally spotted a thumbnail on one of the results pages that looked very much like the Kenyan certificate. I pulled up the full size image and found that it was virtually EXACTLY the same type of document.

It was a scanned image of a "Certified Copy of Registration of Birth" dated in 1964 for a David Jeffrey Bomford on a genealogy website for the Bomford family. Except that David Jeffrey Bomford wasn't born in Kenya, he was born in South Australia. But what was even more interesting was certain other features of the document as compared to the Kenya certificate.

The names of the registrar and the district registrar were the SAME NAMES as given in the Kenya certificate save for the first initials, i.e. G.H. Lavender and J.H. Miller in the Bomford document versus E.H. Lavender and M.H. Miller in the Kenya document.

Also, the book number (44B) and page number (5733) were the exactly the same on both documents.

The image of the Bomford certificate seems to prove beyond any doubt that not only is the Kenya certificate a fake, but that whomever faked it used the Bomford certificate as the template.

Here's a scaled down image of the Bomford certificate:

And here's the URL for the original image that I found on the Bomford website:

That would make absolute sense that the crest at the top of the cert would be the British crest and the 7s 6d thingy, Koyaan you are a genius! Viral people, viral go to it!

Fantastic find. :D

One weird thing, though, they are both folded similarly but the folds are not in the same place.

The real one says the registrar is Douglas Gordon YOUNG; the fake one says Joshua Simon ODUYA - a search on Josh gives you threats against your computer.

Ed Hale got ripped off when he bought the fake. I wonder if his donors are going to be pissed.

Visible to guests, unfortunately no. Sticky, can do.
Edit: The post is sticky, sitting at the top of this forum. Bear in mind, most people are following a link to get here. I can't make a single thread visible, isn't possible. I suppose there's no real harm in making Miscellaneous visible to guests for a short while though. Okay, I'll do it. ;)
