Any logical explanation how THAT occurred??? Because I would guess that Birth Certificate registration occurs in the order in which you were born, ie., August 4 births would have a lesser number than August 5...and so on.

My wife's business deals with state registration forms. Number snafu's like this are common. There could be a multitude of reasons.

For instance she has multiple stacks of the forms. Employees are supposed to use the next number in line but being lazy, very busy or not caring they just grab one when the previosuly employee did not put the stack back in order so the numbers are out of order with the dates every so often.

Maybe the hospital had these forms in different locations???

Not trying to give you a hard time...I appreciate your posting...but, I would imagine sloppy would occur with lets say DMV Title Transfers where dozens are done on a single day. I would imagine, that with only two hospitals; and the population in HI not being that dense, that BC would be pretty rare (a couple dozen a week). So...if a sloppy mistakes would be a little harder to explain away (as opposed to the very busy DMV or Welfare Office).

Agreed, the later serial number on the earlier date certificate doesn’t seem too strange. Different hospitals, wards or individual doctors could have each had a handful of blanks in a drawer, and took them as needed without worrying about number sequences. For example, every few days Doctors A and B take a handful of blanks and place them in their desk drawers. Doctor A’s drawer contains #21-24 and Doctor B’s drawer contains #25-28. On August 4, Doctor A doesn’t deliver any babies, but Doctor B uses #25. On August 5, Doctor A delivers #21 and 22. (Complicate this by many doctors, many birth locations, many babies, and you wonder that the numbers are as close as they are.)
