Secret of the Rosary Films is offering a one million dollar reward for the certified long-form birth certificate of Barack Obama.
The long-form birth certificate must be certified by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Long form birth certificates are exact photocopies of the original birth record that was prepared by the hospital or attending physician at the time of the child's birth.
The long form usually includes parents' information such as address of residence, race, birth place, date of birth -- and additional information on the child's birthplace, and information on the doctors that assisted in the birth of the child. The long form also usually includes the signature of the doctor involved and at least one of the parents.
When Hawaii became a state in 1959, there were many people who resided there who did not have a birth certificate. From 1911 to 1972, in Hawaii a person -- over the age of one -- whose birth was not registered -- could apply for a short form birth certificate in Hawaii.
Obamas Kenyan grandmother stated he was born in Kenya. However, Obamas mother or grandmother probably filed an affidavit stating that Obama was born in Hawaii and the state of Hawaii issued the kind of short form certificate posted on the Obamas Web site.
This is the reason why Obama has not released a long form Hawaiian birth certificate.
