it might be fun to re+register yoor own birthITYF only the parents can do that.
Some years ago, I applied for my full South African birth certificate. I had only ever had a short one, possibly because the long ones were more expensive: even the short one cost 2/6d which was a lot of money in those days. Presumably because I had left South Africa and changed my nationality before their records were computerised, I wasn't on the computer and they couldn't find the original registration (I gather once everything was computerised, the paper records were dumped in an Archive somewhere without being catalogued) so I had to be re-registered. Both my parents had died by then, so the authorities required the eldest child in the family to give my birth details. As I am the eldest child, I effectively re-registered my own birth. They couldn't see anything incongruous in that.
