Anyone know if you were born on a military base if your birth certifcate was issued by the military base or the county/parish the base resides in?

A lot depends on where the base is. If I remembeer correctly, if you or someone was born on a base outside of the Continental US then they will create one. But I think if you are born here, the hospital will process the information just like a regular hospital. The difference is that the county will have the info and the military will also have a file.

Yes, it was processed just like a regular hospital. The military doesn't really keep it on file different than any other hospital. They do have to keep track of it on the members file, but they just have regular hospital records.

i do not know 100%, however, i am inclined to think that if you were born ON the base, then the BC would state the base and the US government. being born on a US mil base in another country is just like being born in the US. take care

Actually, it has nothing to do with the base. It goes by the county the base was located in..

Well actually I believe it's from the county/parish. I just checked with my brother who was born on a military base years ago. When he wanted to get a copy of his birth certificate he had to write to the state the base was in to be able to get it. I hope that helps.

I was born on Edwards Airforce Base in California and I was able to get a copy of my birth certificate from where we actually lived so I think it's by county. We lived in the same county as the base & my Mom gave birth at the base.
