I discovered what I had always thought was a birth certificate was actually a "registration of birth" from the US Commerce department. This was apparently what they did in 1945.
I also had a birth registration from the Commerce Department which I thought was a birth certificate for many years. This was from 1939 in Michigan. Twenty-one years later when I wanted to purchase alcohol I found out I needed a birth certificate and got one at that time.
