Birth certificate madness.

OK, I finally got through to vital records and apparently I didn’t write UK for the place of birth, I wrote England. The lady I just spoke to on the phone told me that it got entered as unknown because “England is not a country.”!

Unbelievable.

Also absolutely crazy is that at the hospital they take your word for it that the information you provide about place of birth is correct, but to get this corrected (even though the lady said she pulled out the original form I filled in and could see the error was in data entry) I now have to go through a rigmarole and send in a notarised copy of my passport with a written request and authorisation to make the change.
