Long Form Birth Certificate (LFBC) Forgery Detection for Dummies
After Arizona Sheriff Arpaio announced the Cold Case Posse's finding that the president's birthcertificate was forged, I thought we needed a simple do-it-yourself test so our good citizenscould check it themselves. Long Form Birth Certificate (LFBC) Forgery Detection for Dummies describes a technique that anyone with a modicum of computer knowledge can use.The LFBC test can be performed on a basic Windows computer—nothing is stored on thecomputer and no other software is required.
 
Certificate of Live Birth cropped fromSnopes.com.Years ago forging a document that used a typeface from the sixties was a formidable task andrequired a high degree of skill. With the advent of computers, much of the skill has beenoffloaded to graphic programs. While there are different versions of Windows, all come with asimple graphics program (Paint) that has the capability to perform the LFBC test.
 
It probably wasn't difficult for the forger to obtain a LFBC that had the correct handwritten dataso only a few typewritten fields had to be changed. To perform the LFBC test you need toobtain a copy of the LFBC. Some posted copies lack sufficient detail so a high resolution copyis required. Copies are available from many websites as well asSnopes.com.Depending on the version of Windows used, there may be differences in the namingconventions shown. Paint has trouble accommodating today's high resolution screens; use theMinimize Button before capturing an image with Prnt Scrn. The image can also be madesmaller by adjusting the borders (where the cursor changes to a double-headed arrow). If Paintis not on your desktop or Start Menu it may be accessed by clicking Start/AllPrograms/Accessories/Paint. Once you have a copy of the LFBC on your screen, proceed asfollows:1. Position the minimized LFBC so all typed fields are visible then press
Prnt Scrn
to copy a bitmap image to the Clipboard then close the browser.2. From Windows load
Paint
then select
Edit/Paste
to paste the LFBC into Paint.3. Using Paint's
Select
tool (top right of the tool stack) crop and resize the LFBC.4. Select
Edit/Copy
to copy the resized LFBC to the Clipboard.5. Select
File/New/Don't Save
then select
Image/Attributes
and set the
Height
and
Width
to
10
pixels then click 
OK 
.6. Select
Edit/Paste
to copy the resized LFBC to the screen.7. Click Paint's
Pencil
tool (left side of the tool stack).8. Select
Image/Resize/Skew
then enter 500% for both
Resize
fields then click 
OK 
. It may benecessary to vary the image resize to suit the screen resolution and/or personal preference.If you've gotten this far, you're now in position to examine the LFBC.Kerningis the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a proportional font to achieve a visually pleasingresult. A typewritten document utilizes a fixed font so there should be no evidence of kerning.Any variation of spacing between characters is an indication that the document may have beentampered with.To assist in comparing characters, it is convenient to outline a group of characters with Paint'sSelect tool then Copy/Paste them directly to the LFBC. Once they are on the LFBC they can bemoved close to the characters being compared. If you are new to Paint, some experimentationmay be required.

Manual mechanical typewriters produced documents with inconstant spacing based on a number of variables to include speed and force of keystrike, shift key usage and whether or not the user was a touch typist or not. What is identified here has nothing to do with "kerning," and is completely charctaeristic of an authentic 1961 birth certificate. This "analysis" is pure bunk.
