    how did people make corrections on documents let's say 30+ years ago. was there a proper procedure for it. i am looking for some informaiton on that. i have a birth certificate with corrections. last name/first names were put in wrong places, these names were crossed out and typed in correctly. there is writing on the right column, this i asume was the correct procedure back then for making corrections.

    how do i make a person understand that 30+ years ago there was NO DELETE KEY or white out. my engineering schooling taught me that corrections should basicly be crossed out not omitted or hidden for future reference. same goes for medical. these fields of study have been around for centuries... /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    any comments, references would be great.
