Authenticating your Birth Certificate

Finn: Sol

The Birth Certificate is the primary document used to enslave us all. Not only does it grant the state the right to take our children whenever they want, it is registered as a security at the DTC (Depository Trust Company) and used by the government as surety for public debt. In other words, they can tax the person named on that document into oblivion to pay back federal debt.

Under the democracy, as long as we keep registering our children with the State, they have an endless supply of slaves to tax for fiscal sins. The details of this process are too involved to place here but the point is that a major step to regain your freedom is to regain Birth Title as opposed to Birth Certificate of Title.

What follows is a painless, jail-free, non-confrontational, LAWFUL, process to reclaim the status of holder in due course to the Title to YOU.

Laying the Foundation:

The key to this process is Minnesota Court Rule 220. In all other states I have examined, including Oklahoma, the laws and nature relating to the Birth registration process is hidden. For the most part all you can find is a blurb on some Department of Vital Statistics webpage to the effect that Birth Registration began in 1917. If we find the roadmap in one state it should - and does - apply to all.

Minnesota Rule 220. Birth Certificates

The Registrar of Titles is authorized to receive for registration of memorials upon any outstanding certificate of title an official birth certificate pertaining to a registered owner named in said certificate of title showing the date of birth of said registered owner, providing there is attached to said birth certificate an affidavit of an affiant who states that he/she is familiar with the facts recited, stating that the party named in said birth certificate is the same party as one of the owners named in said certificate of title; and that thereafter the Registrar of Titles shall treat said registered owner as having attained the age of the majority at a date 18 years after the date of birth shown by said certificate.

So, what is this saying?

The Birth Certificate is a Certificate of Title, just like your car! You have the right to use that NAME, but the State has legal title and controlling interest in the property – the NAME! We learn to associate this NAME with our physical self from kindergarten on, never realizing we are just using a NAME that the State owns.

Just like your car, you get to use it as long as you follow all the regulations and of course pay tribute to its registered owner. Also Rule 220 implies the State can treat you as a child (infant), no matter how old you are, until you have gone to the registrar and TOLD THEM via affidavit that you are over 18!

The State holds the Title by mere presumption and the fact that you have never claimed it. Your mother gave it to them, and you haven't gotten it back. So how can you get your Title back without a big confrontation at Vital Statistics?

Looking at UCC 9-311a (UCC 9 deals with securities) we see that maybe there is a statute that could get us access to the original Title without a confrontation.


(a) [Security interest subject to other law.]

Except as otherwise provided in subsection (d), the filing of a financing statement (a lien) is not necessary or effective to perfect a security interest in property subject to:

(1) a statute, regulation, or treaty of the United States whose requirements for a security interest's obtaining priority over the rights of a lien creditor with respect to the property preempt Section 9-310(a);

(2) [list any statute covering automobiles, trailers, mobile homes, boats, farm tractors, or the like, which provides for a security interest to be indicated on a certificate of title as a condition or result of perfection, and any non-Uniform Commercial Code central filing statute]; or

(3) a statute of another jurisdiction which provides for a security interest to be indicated on a certificate of title as a condition or result of the security interest's obtaining priority over the rights of a lien creditor with respect to the property.

Now look at 28 USC 1733.

28 U.S. Code § 1733 - Government records and papers; copies

(b) Properly authenticated copies or transcripts of any books, records, papers or documents of any department or agency of the United States shall be admitted in evidence equally with the originals thereof.

Wow! If we get our Certificate of Title properly authenticated, is it possible that it would be treated as equal to the original? Let’s find out!

First a word on Authentications and Certifications. Authentication is used to verify the authenticity of the notaries signature (and thereby the authenticity of the document) for all states that have NOT signed onto the Hague convention treaty. Certifications and Apostilles do the same thing for countries that ARE signatories to the Hague treaty. Court clerks may try to get you to settle for a certification instead of authentication, but remember we need "Properly authenticated copies!"

There is no list of what states are not Hague signatories, but you can go to

Also, you can see the Hague website to check what states are not Hague signatories. Click on Non-Member Contracting States on the left side Menu. Click on the tiny map at the top of the page and download the map. The grey countries are the ones you are looking for. Find one that you like and verify it is NOT on either list of countries in both the Non-member Contracting States and the HCCH Member States lists. For example, Jamaica and Taiwan are not on either list.

Pick one you like for use on a federal DS-4194 form and to give to clerks who want to know the destination.

The Process:

Get a certified copy of your Certificate of Live Birth authenticated at each level of government - County (if applicable), State and Federal.

Step 1: Get a certified copy of your Certificate of Live Birth.

Sometimes called the long form, this is NOT the same as an uncertified regular Birth Certificate. Some states have them at the county where you were born, other states like Oklahoma keep them at the State Vital Statistics office. You may go there in person or order them online from a company like VitalChek

Step 2: Next get the Certified Certificate of Live Birth authenticated at each level of government. If you get it from your county, then you want to get it Authenticated by the county superior court clerk or whatever option they have at the county level.

Next, the Secretary of State handles authentications for the state. In Oklahoma their office is on the first floor of the capital. Have them authenticate the Certified Certificate of Live Birth. They will attach a fancy page on the front with a brass rivet.

Step 3: Next go to Department of State Office of Authentications

Download form DS-4194 on the right hand side and fill it out with the NON-Hague country of your choice. There may be cheaper ways, but I chose to prepay postage for a self-addressed return document mailer and enclosed it, a money order, completed form DS-4194 and Authenticated Certified Certificate of Live Birth in the next size up document mailer and send that off to the address on their website.

You will get back a properly authenticated Certificate of Live Birth with a cover sheet like this!

The combination of a duly authenticated Certificate of Title and an attached claim is what is known as a counter deed. From the perspective of trust law you now hold in your hand a deed to YOU. From the perspective of commercial law you hold a first in time first in line document to YOU, in other words you are now the real party in interest and holder in due course to the Title to YOU!

So what good is it? - Correcting your Status

For starters it is a very cool looking document, and it gets your feet wet navigating through various levels of government. Far more importantly, in every court case the issues of standing, status, case and controversy must be satisfied to move forward. Part of why we have a 'Nanny-State' is that under the legal system they have set up, we are all seen as wards of the state. Our status as Citizen-Principal is not respected even if our house is 'paid off,' we have a 'good job' and 'money' in the bank. This process is a major steppingstone in correcting the record of your status to Citizenship-Principal like before the 14th Amendment as opposed to the citizen subject status of almost everyone walking around today. Since all crimes have been converted from common law crimes to commercial crimes (27 CFR 72.11), this document makes you the first in time first in line lien holder against your name.  As you learn more of who you are in the legal and lawful sense, you will find this is a powerful and useful document.

Go through these legal definitions from Blacks Law 1st Edition as some preparation for reclaiming your Title. As you read through them you may begin to see the enormity of the crime perpetrated on the American people.

BIRTH - The act of being born or wholly brought into separate existence.

DELIVERY - In conveyancing; The final and absolute transfer of a deed, properly executed, to the grantee, or to some person for his use, in such manner that it cannot be recalled by the grantor.
In the law of sales; The tradition or transfer of the possession of personal property from one person to another.
In medical jurisprudence; The act of a woman giving birth to her offspring.

LIVERY – (1) In English law; Delivery of possession of their lands to the king's tenants in capite or tenants by knight's service. (2) A writ which may be sued out by a ward in chivalry, on reaching his majority, to obtain delivery of the possession of his lands out of the hands of the guardian.

DEED - A sealed instrument, containing a contract or covenant, delivered by the party to be bound thereby, and accepted by the party to whom the contract or covenant runs...
In a more restricted sense, a written agreement, signed, sealed, and delivered, by which one person conveys land, tenements, or hereditaments to another. This is its ordinary modern meaning.

COUNTER-DEED. A secret writing, either before a notary or under a private seal, which destroys, invalidates, or alters a public one.

TITLE... The word "title" certainly does not merely signify the right which a person has to the possession of property; because there are many instances in which a person may have the right to the possession of property, and at the same time have no title to the same. In its ordinary legal acceptation, however, it generally seems to imply a right of possession also. It therefore appears, on the whole, to signify the outward evidence of the right, rather than the mere right itself.
Thus, when it is said that the "most imperfect degree of title consists in the mere naked possession or actual occupation of an estate," it means that the mere circumstance of occupying the estate is the weakest species of evidence of the occupier's right to such possession... (There is much more about title in the Black’s Law dictionary)

AUTHENTICATION - In the law of evidence. The act or mode of giving authority or legal authenticity to a statute, record, or other written instrument, or a certified copy thereof, so as to render it legally admissible in evidence.
An attestation made by a proper officer by which he certifies that a record is in due form of law, and that the person who certifies it is the officer appointed so to do.
