Subject: Re: Passport for Canada
Hi Candice,

The instructions for obtaining a certified copy of one's birth certificate vary, depending upon the place of birth. If she was born in New York City, this page has all the instructions: http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/vr/vrbappl.html

The specific information for obtaining certified birth certificates for other U.S. birthplaces is accessible from this page: http://tinyurl.com/j1ej

Check this page for Passport Services and Information: http://travel.state.gov/passport_services.html

Hope that helps, Linda
