ERRORS ON THE INDEX FILES
The Bureau of Vital Statistics
recognizes that there may be missing data, misreported data, or data
entry errors. Users of the indexes may discover an error such as a
misspelling of a name or an incorrect date.
The Bureau of Vital Statistics indexes
are static and cannot be altered. However, if you are concerned that
the original certificate is in error, you may file an amendment
to the certificate with the correct information.
IF THE BIRTH RECORD SAYS
"DO NOT ISSUE" IN THE FATHER'S NAME FIELD
In the past, when a person died, the
father's name field on the electronic birth record was changed to
"DO NOT ISSUE". This was a method that was established as a
flag to BVS personnel that they should not issue a certified copy of
this birth certificate to anyone claiming to be the deceased.
If you wish to obtain the father's
information, follow the procedures found in How
to obtain certified copies.
