Also from me- AF Spencer -every time I try to access "Craven County" -it comes up "Columbus County". I am finding oftentimes, that the more technology-the more obstructive to simple, what should be routine requests. I just want the correct person to type my birth certificate correctly. I pay the county my fee & I receive my correct birth certificate in the mail. Now I will have to dig for the Craven County Number for public records, go through God knows how many people, be put on hold who knows hopw many times, before MAYBE I will get the right person. ...Is there anybody out there who can do this for me?
Answer 2012-09-18 19:27 GMT
I simply need the most direct phone number & address of the Craven county public records-birth & death certificates. I need to send back my birth certificate with BOTH my mother & father's names misspelled. I requested this some time ago-& now an issue has comeup that I need to present the birth certificate correctly.  The names were written clearly on the original ceritficate. The mistakes were sloppy, offensive & hurtfu on the dupilcate. This is a public records site- you don't need all this other "Facebook" etc. manure- just get the basics correctly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you- 6th generation N.C. er
