The Birth record can only be claimed by the following: The individual himself or herself, the parents of the registrant, any child of the registrant, Legal guardian of the registrant, an n m legal, representative of the registrant or an heir of the registrant.
Nowadays we can get copies of birth certificates through the Internet.
The Division of Vital Records in Virginia has birth records that date back to 1853. Interestingly, though, the Division of Vital Records doesn't have records from 1896 to June 1914. However, aside from this gap in coverage, records can be requested from most of the last 150 years.
