What is it with the Medallion Guarantee?|

I still have stock in my mother's name under the Gifts to Minors Act because the transfer agent insisted they had to get a certified copy of my birth certificate in order to prove I was over 18. I don't have one (I have the original copy they gave my parents), and I'm not about to get one for them.
The fact that, at the time I requested the transfer, the account had had that title (and my SS#) for 30+ years apparently did not suffice to prove I was over 18.
