Amended Certificates

Amended certificates, typically ones for birth, are typical "corrections" filed where the original was incorrect or incomplete. Birth certificates are more likely to be amended than any other record. Death records from fifty years ago have no need to be amended usually--wrong names do not typically matter.

Birth certificates are most likely to be amended because incorrect dates of birth, names of parents, etc. can create problems for the person still living.
