probate birth certificates

RootsWeb: TXDALLAS-L [TXDALLAS] Birth Certificates: "There are delayed (or probate) birth certificates file by many people in the 1930s when there was a need for proof of birth to get a Social Security Card. It was not unusual for persons (especially women who were not employed outside the home) to get one at the time a spouse retired.

These records could be filed anywhere - not just in the county of birth. I would check the probate birth records in the county of birth as well as places persons lived in the 30s and early 40s, or even where they lived at the time of retirment. There are birth certificates for foreign born persons filed in local county courts."
