    I'm trying to translate the phrase: Direccion general de registro civil Identificacion y cedulacion.

    what I have so far: General authorities of civil registration identification and _______?????

    I know that a cedula is an ID card, so wouldn't identificacion y cedulacion be the same thing?? any good translations?? thanks!!

    Just a hint:

    Indentificar: to establish the identity of someone (the whole process: take fingerprints, photos, names, etc.).
    Cedulación: To put that information together in an ID card. To issue the card
