A birth1 is sufficiently proved either by a certificate of baptism2 or by a birth certificate3. A marriage is sufficiently proved by a certified extract from the parochial or general register or marriage certificate4; and a death by a certificate of burial or by a certificate of death5. In practice, probate or letters of administration are usually accepted as sufficient evidence of death. Evidence is not usually required of the identity of the parties named in such certificates; when it is required, it can be given by means of a statutory declaration
