What if I don't have a birth certificate or the state can't find a record of my birth?
If you do NOT have a previous U.S. passport or a certified birth certificate, you will need:
A Letter of No Record
Issued by the State with your name, date of birth, which years were searched for a birth record and that there is no birth certificate on file for you.
You also may need the following if possible:
- Baptismal certificate
- Hospital birth certificate
- Census record
- Early school record
- Family bible record
- Doctor's record of post-natal care
