Ordinarily, for most people, this probably isn't a hassle, but for me it might be. Ten years +, back when I got this, I found to my surprise that I didn't really exist. I'd had a copy of something that I thought was my birth certificate, but couldn't find that. Tried to get a certified copy from the state of Indiana, where I was born. They don't have me in their system at all. I went through a bunch of rigamaroll, trying to put together a body of proof and ended up with a census record from 1955 and notarized letters from my dad and my brother saying that I really was me.
So, what I'd like to know is what does one do to renew an expired passport? Should I go to the local passport office, and will they take the expired passport as proof of my existence. I feel really stupid, since I swore I'd never let the dang thang expire after going through so much grief to get it. Any suggestions would be very welcome.
