We had our appointment in Chicago in Feb. and there was an issue with my grandfathers information. His birth certificate shows his DOB as Jan. 1916 (which I know is inaccurate), his baptismal shows Nov. 1915 (which makes sense but I cannot use) and his death and marriage both show Nov. 1916. He served in the army and was a cook county judge and Chicago police officer and all of those records show Nov. 1916. When we went in for our appointment I tried to explain but she says that she believes there was another child with the same name that died which I am 100% sure is not the case. I contacted the different record departments and they will do amendments but at this point the consulate said they will not accept anything with an amendment as she only believes that it was another child that died.
I'm hoping someone can advise me if I have any options at this point?
I have found that if I amend the death certificate so that my great grandfathers name is spelled correctly cook county will let me file a delayed record of birth for my grandfather. Has anyone else had experience with this? Do you think it would be accepted?
