    My great grandfather was born out of wedlock in 1884 and I can't find a birth certificate on him. I'm sure we know who his mother was, but we have no proof. Where can I find a birth certificate or didn't they issue them in 1884 or to children born out of

      My great grandfather was born out of wedlock in 1884 but we can't find a birth certificate for him. I also wanted to find the obituary for his mother who died in 1919 but I can't find that either. We think there would be some kind of information on the certificates that prove his birth. I've been searching for years and I would like to know where to turn. I have visited the courthouses in the counties they lived in and can't find anything. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
