Reading i-130 instructions on uscis website to prepare your package. 

It says to put potitioner and beneficiary name and A-number on all attachments. Are they referring to added pages like part 9 (exsplanation page) and cover letter? 

Or do they want on all documents of suport like birth certificate, marrage certificate and name change  and family photos to prove bona fide marriage?

Sounds like a misinterpretation.  How about quoting the part of the instructions you are referring to, with full context.  Like the full paragraph and any "If...." above it.

 

Note that supporting documents are not "attachments".  Attachments are rare.

  • Form being filed
  • Supporting documentation:
    • Submit the documents or evidence listed in the form instructions.
    • Supporting documents must be in English or accompanied by a complete English translation.
    • Submit copies unless we request original documents. If you send an original document with your form, it may become part of the record and we will not return it to you automatically. 
    • If you have any attachments, make sure each attached page has your name and A-Number (if any). You may also number the pages and include the total amount of pages being attached (for example, “page 1 of 11”).
    • Send single-sided copies of your supporting documentation.

Thank you for your help! I appreciate it. 

 

One last silly question 

Should I add my wife's thai birth certificate? 

I'm all ready putting her passport copy and her name change documents.

Beneficiary birth certificate and passport copy are submitted at the NVC stage.  Study those I-130 instructions again.
