Dear Jennifer: Life was so hectic right after I had my third child and I forgot to get an official copy of his birth certificate. We're going on a cruise at the end of the year, so now I need a certified copy. He's three. Where do I pick it up at?
It depends when he was born. San Joaquin County Public Health Services registers births, deaths and fetal deaths, and maintains those records for events that occurred in the current and immediate past calendar year.
