I was born in Detroit, MI in 1970. I know my birth mother is my biological mother, of that there is no doubt. However, when I obtained a copy of my birth certificate it was black. I do not know anyone else with a black birth certificate. When I mentioned this to a friend of mine, she said it is because the ''black'' certificate is an ammended copy. She told me that her adopted son has a ''real'' birth certificate that is sealed. His revised birth certificate is black. Is this true? How do I obtain my original birth certificate?

Re: Birth Record
It probably means nothing more than it was copied from microfiche. I think you are reading too much into this. However, if you are still curious, you will have to investigate/research further on your own.
