Boneheaded Birthers Borrow Bomford Birth

A commenter at discovered that the latest phony Kenyan birth certificate for Barack Obama bears a striking resemblance to this one, posted on a genealogy website.

It was a scanned image of a "Certified Copy of Registration of Birth" dated in 1964 for a David Jeffrey Bomford on a genealogy website for the Bomford family. Except that David Jeffrey Bomford wasn't born in Kenya, he was born in South Australia. But what was even more interesting was certain other features of the document as compared to the Kenya certificate.

The names of the registrar and the district registrar were the SAME NAMES as given in the Kenya certificate save for the first initials, i.e. G.H. Lavender and J.H. Miller in the Bomford document versus E.H. Lavender and M.H. Miller in the Kenya document.

Also, the book number (44B) and page number (5733) were [...] exactly the same on both documents. [Link]


I guess I just have a question more than comment -- how in heavens name did anyone figure out where a certificate was copied from -- I mean what kind of parameters does one use to determine where. I am not disputing it was copied and then photshopped, it's just I can't imagine figuring how to track it to its origins in another country and such - wel done I guess if it's true!


It was found through hours-long search of Google Images. Really some nice detective work.

And now anyone can make their own!
