Is This the Source of the Forged ‘Kenyan Birth Certificate?’

[Update: Credit where it's due—my source tipped me off to this in the Politijab web forums, which have become a good site for "birther" debunking.]

One of my friends in the small community of Obama “birther”-debunkers passes on quite the discovery: a 1964 “certified copy of registration of birth” from Australia, easily available on Bomford.net, a genealogy site. There are striking similarities between this document and the one Orly Taitz is passing off as a “Kenyan birth certificate” for Barack Obama.

  • The design is identical, down to the seal at the top and the classifications (“Christian name,” etc) used for identifying the baby.
  • The “registrar” on the Bomford document is G.F. Lavender. On the Taitz document, it’s E.F. Lavender.
  • The “district registrar” on the Bomford document is J.H. Miller. On the Taitz document, it’s M.H. Miller.

  • The number of the book is identical on both documents: Book 44B, Page 5733.

What’s more likely — that two Kenyan bureaucrats shared last names with two Australian bureaucrats, and that the numbers on both certificates were identical? Or that someone used this document, available online for anyone who wanted to look, to forge the Obama “certificate?”

Update: As a commenter points out, the Bomford.net site is down. Here is the original image, from that site:
