When an acceptable birth certificate cannot be obtained for a person born in the United States, a birth affidavit, accompanied by a notice from appropriate authorities indicating
no birth record exists, may be submitted with an application for a passport. The birth affidavit form may also be submitted in conjunction with other birth records.
The birth affidavit should be made by a person who has knowledge of the date and place of birth of the person whose birth in the United States is to be proved. The affidavit
shall state briefly how and through what source the knowledge was acquired. It is preferred that the affidavit be made by an older blood relative although it may be made by the
attending physician or any other person who has personal knowledge of the birth.
