If you wanted to get your own long form -- the "actual document"-- to give to someone else or release to the public, you couldn't. You would have to submit a request for a waiver, which may or may not be granted.
Short forms, known sometimes as computer certifications, are not universally available, but are cheaper than photocopies and much more easily accessible. Limited information is taken from the original birth record (the long form) and stored in a database that can be accessed quickly when birth certificates are needed in a short amount of time. Whereas the long form is a copy of the actual birth certificate, a short form is a document that certifies the existence of such certificate, and is usually titled a "Certification of Birth" or "Certificate of Birth Registration". The short form typically includes the child's name, date of birth, sex, and place of birth, although some also include the names of the child's parents. When the certification does include the names of the parents, it can be used in lieu of a long form birth certificate in almost all circumstances. Nearly all states in the U.S. issue short forms certifications, on both state and local levels
So are you going to demand that the state make the actual certificate available to experts to authenticate?

There ISN'T ANY actual certificate. If there were, we would not be seeing this bull ****.
Does anyone doubt that the CIA and other security organizations don't vet and do extensive background checks on all presidents and presidential candidates?
How is it their right? Where in the constitution does it say that a candidate must prove his birth to the satisfaction of every trailer-trash whiner in the country?
If that document were in layers from normal scanning it would be searchable, and it isn't.

No kidding. Talk about an Al Capone's vault.
