Extract From WND below. This is strange. It suggests that the registration number anomoly maybe down to the fact that Obama's mum was admitted to the
hospital after this lady. The question is what was the procedure then? I also find it strange that they would issue a "live birth" registration number
prior to birth. What if the child was born dead? and that was not uncommon 50 years ago. Also why will they not release info about the then procedure
for issuance of birth rg numbers.
A close examination of the birth certificates issued by Kapi'olani to the Nordyke twins shows the registration number precedes the number given Obama,
even though the future president was born a day earlier.
Susan Nordyke was born at 2:12 p.m. Hawaii time and was given No. 151 – 61 – 10637, which was filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
Gretchen Nordyke followed at 2:17 p.m. and was given No. 151 – 61 – 10638, which was also filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
According to a version of Obama's purported short-form certificate available from FactCheck.org, Obama was given a higher registration number than the
Nordyke twins. The online image indicates the number is No. 151 – 1961 – 10641, even though he was born Aug. 4, 1961, the day before the twins,
and his birth was registered with the Hawaii registrar three days earlier, Aug. 8, 1961.
The middle figure in Obama's purported registration also is different than the Nordykes'. Obama's is 1961, indicating the year, while the Nordykes' is
One explanation for the out-of-order serial numbers might be that several serialized stacks of birth certificates were made available at different
Another possibility is that Obama's number is not a genuine registration number created in 1961 but was issued when the short-form document was
generated during the 2008 presidential campaign.
Eleanor Nordyke told WND she thinks her twins got lower numbers because she went into the hospital Aug. 4, 1961, and was in labor for 20 hours before
she delivered. She speculates that Ann Dunham came in after her and was given a later number, even though Dunham's baby was born earlier. Nordyke's
twins were not born until the afternoon of the next day.
WND was unable to receive a response from Hawaii officials regarding the state's procedure for issuing registration numbers.
