My birth certificate is in another European country Anyways, where I am stuck is what are they attesting? Normally if it is to say true copy of original or to witness a signature, etc Birth Certificate is original and stamped by my own government. So what do they do? Some of these are simple but I bet I randomly got an interesting person handling my questions a the embassy. Any idea?
Use any agency in the USA to get your documents attested. I used Sam's Passport in Houston. I sent them a copy of the originals. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself even if you live in the USA. It costs a bit but it's worth it. this is a common requirement, no need to get concerned about it.
