A Crantz is born.

After 30 some years, Chris finally has proof that he was infact born. There were all of these issues at the time of his brith that "caused" his parents to put false names on the birth certificate. We've spent years trying to come up with the correct combo of false names used and finally got the missing link from his mom. Christopher Crantz was born. I'm not sure who he is, but I am darn glad that we don't all have to change our names to reflect the error. So since his legal name is Crantz, he will have to get new identification stating that his name is Crantz now that he has a birth certificate, not Krantz like he's been living under for the last 30 years, and legally change his name. I'm trying to get him to change his whole name...any suggestions? I think it's pretty funny that he's made it in this country 30 years without a birth certificate. He has everything else in the proper name, just not the actual proof of birth. He could never get a passport because of this, and I cant wait until he does....oh the possibilities. oh wait, this just means that he can travel more for work...darn...oh well, I'm going to Rome...

LOL...Just Chris is changing his name legally from Crantz to Krantz...he has been going by Krantz since birth so all of his records say Krantz...just no birth cert. He will get new id saying Crantz based on his birth cert then legally change his name to Krantz to match what it is supposed to be, and ours. It was easier to change one back and forth than all of us...sooooo stupid.
