How To Phony Up A Kenyan Birth Certificate

Posted by | August 3, 2009 20:05 | Filed under: Top Stories

It looks as though David Weigel at Washington Independent has found the source of the so-called “Kenyan birth certificate” that Orly Taitz is trying to pass off as some kind of smoking gun.  It’s readily available at a genealogy website that has a boilerplate version.

– The design is identical, down to the seal at the top and the classifications (”Christian name,” etc) used for identifying the baby.


– The “registrar” on the Bomford document is G.F. Lavender. On the Taitz document, it’s E.F. Lavender.


– The “district registrar” on the Bomford document is J.H. Miller. On the Taitz document, it’s M.H. Miller.


– The number of the book is identical on both documents: Book 44B, Page 5733.


What’s more likely — that two Kenyan bureaucrats shared last names with two Australian bureaucrats, and that the numbers on both certificates were identical? Or that someone used this document, available online for anyone who wanted to look, to forge the Obama “certificate?”
