Birth Certificate - William Archibald Ranson

Yesterday I posted Archie's obituary. Today, lets take a look at his birth certificate.

Archie's Birth Certificate also includes a Supplemental Report of Birth. According to the Utah State Archives website:
Included are Supplemental Report of Birth forms, which are used to certify that a name has been given to a child who was unnamed at the time the original birth certificate was filed, and Affidavit to Amend a Record forms, which are used to correct erroneous information or provide information missing from the original record. In some cases, these documents may be supplemented by correspondence or a copy of church records.
I wish I had the date when the Supplement was filed. It would be nice to know how long it took Joseph and Valate to name him.
