My Father, Obama And Their Birth Certificates

My father (long deceased) was born in Hawaii but I've only just now seen his birth certificate, which my brother David accessed when he visited the state recently. Some matters of family trivia (unlikely to be interesting to people outside our family):

  • Biograndfather's name was "George Harold"; "George" and "Harold" are both family names on my wife Kris' side: coincidence or fate?
  • Dad's mother remarried a man whose last name was "Winnie", which is why none of us have the last name "Raab"
  • Winnie-the-Pooh, our family totemic creature, lived under the name of "Sanders". Spooky!
