Spanish term or phrase: partida vs acta de nacimiento
Help me find a way to render that distinction into English, between partida and acta de nacimiento, according to Mexican law.

Here is a portion of the text:
Asi mismo el artículo del Código Civil Federal señala que "La filiación de los hijos nacidos de matrimonio se prueba con la partida de su nacimiento y con el acta de matrimonio de los padres," aclarándose que por lo que hace a la expresión de partida de nacimiento se refiere al acta de nacimiento en comento, luego entonces se reitera que el documento legal para acreditar el parentesco entre padres e hijos es el acta de nacimiento.

How cam I make sense of that paragraph in English so the reader can understand?

I used birth record for partida, and birth certificate for acta de nacimiento (since it involves a process of document verification in Mexico) in order to make that distinction to the reader. Thank you

agree  Henry Hinds: Birth record = partida, birth certificate = acta en ese orden, para distinguir, aunque en forma genérica los términos son equivalentes.
