Delayed Birth Certificates

Years ago, births were written in family Bibles, on notes of paper, etc. when the government required birth certificates, then people of all ages applied for delayed birth certificates.

A delayed birth certificate is one that is not filed within a set period of time, in North Carolina this is within a year of the child’s birth.
