A template is a document that serves as an example for how to create a similar document. Templates can be created for any type of document. You may want to use a birth certificate template to create your own personal birth certificate or you might want to use one to create your own business letterhead.
A birth certificate is a document that establishes a person’s identity and provides parents or guardians with information about the time, date, place of birth, and other personal information about their baby. It may also establish the identity of an adoptee as someone with new legal rights. The original intent was for the document to show the truth of when and where the child was born and who their parents are. Birth certificates are generally created shortly after birth by a registrar.
