If it was not for SS it probably was for ration stamps during WWII.

Bill,

Sounds like this might be a delayed birth certificate. I would suspect
Cook County didn't have his birth record at the time he may have been
registering for social security so he supplied his copy (maybe the original)
for filing.

Listers,

I recently received a copy of my grandfather's birth certificate. My
grandfather was born 24 August 1893. It gives the usual information.
However, the bottom third appears to be an affidavit, which was notarized in
1942. Grandpa would have been 44 going on 45 at the time. Is there some
reason I am not aware of for this affidavit? Didn't they have birth
certificates in 1893?
