Birth Certificate watermarks

Hello,
When copying my Birth Certificate, or for NY, Certified Transcript of birth, the watermarks with "void" come through all over. I'm sure if all they're asking for is a copy, front and back of this, this is OK if it happens? I would think this happens with most if not all Birth Certificates.
Thank you.

I kind of thought they'd have run into this before... I think I'll just copy them after all.
Thank you too.

Yeah, I sent a scan of my birth certificate which was acquired in the summer of 1990 (the year we immigrated from Holland to Canada), and was hole-punched through the name of the country of birth, and we (mercifully) did not get any flack for it. Still, I had my mom get a fresh copy when she was visiting family over Christmas so I have it for the interview later on...

Thank you too.

The security markings actual are there to show you have the original in your possession, if it were some sort of forgery then then markings would not be on the forgery, USCIS would probably question the validity of your copy if the "VOID" markings were not in the copy.

I don't see how this proves you have the original in your possession at all. It is trivial to print "VOID" on a piece of paper. They show up in the copy because it is a copy, and not an original/authentic birth certificate.

Anyway, that is beside the point as a copy is acceptable.
