Obama provides details of his birth weight in Dreams From My Father; Hm. Well, my mother told me as a kid what my birthweight was (9 pounds 15 ounces), and I remembered it from that. I dont remember seeing a copy of my birth certificate until I was 15 and getting my learners permit, and I didnt look at the birth weight section. Im 43, and I couldnt tell you where the birth weight section on my birth certificate isI just remember that its on green paper If this is true why isnt the birth weight recorded on a Hawaiian Birth Certificate? This calls in to question exactly what document was he looking at?
Maybe his original Birth Certificate is from Kenya and his mother flew in back to Hawaii because the laws in 1961 in Hawaii. Perhaps what he has is the easy obtainable “Late” Certificate of Birth. The Certificate of Hawaiian Birth program was established in 1911, during the territorial era, to register a person born in Hawaii who was one year old or older and whose birth had not been previously registered in Hawaii. The Certificate of Hawaiian Birth Program was terminated in 1972, during the statehood era. “Who is Eligible to Apply for Late Registration? As provided by law (HRS §§338-15, 338-29.5), the following persons may apply for late registration: Any person born in Hawaii who is one year old or older and whose birth has not been previously registered in Hawaii, or that person’s parent, guardian, next of kin, or older person acting for that person and having knowledge of the facts of birth may request the registration of a late certificate of birth. What I find curious is under the law you can apply for one of these years after the birth as long as someone has knowledge of the facts of birth. After reading this I am wondering if Obama was really born in Hawaii if all that was needed was his mothers say so. He could have easily been born in Kenya, brought back to the US and applied for a LATE Certificate.
Hawaii became a state in 1959. Obama was born in 1961. So if indeed he was born in Hawaii, this that you state would not apply because Hawaii was a state when he was born.
