Birth Certificates contains legal information of a person’s name, date of birth, state, city, county of birth, sex, mother’s name, and father’s name, etc. Unfortunately, some of us have problems securing a copy from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) (formerly NSO) and Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO). If you are trying to request for a copy of your birth certificate from them, all you got was a notice informing you that there is no record of your birth certificate.
