Yes, everything worked out perfect and faster than we could have imagined.

A little bit of an update..

 

Thank you all for all your suggestions. They were so, so helpful! I'm so thankful for this forum.

 

My mom contacted the congresswoman in New Mexico, and the lady says this happens a lot. She said to just get as much information as possible, send it in, and if it still comes back rejected, to call the office again, so that' a huge relief.

 

My mom has contacted the school she might have gone to (grandma is not exactly sure where she went to school.. she only went to 8th grade), and she is getting the sealed baptismal certificate, and this weekend, she is getting her older sister to fill out the affidavit. It sounds like everything will work out!woot.gif

 

I'll post when the passport is finally in hand!

with an older living relative you can totally get this straightend out. That was a problem with my grandma's case. She's the oldest.

Sounds like you have everything you need to get it done & a state rep to help you. Your grandma will definitly get that passport!

With everything else going on I never even thought about my grandma not being able to get a passport until I read this thread. My grandma was born somewhere in SC and the building where her records were stored burned down. I am going to call her tomorrow to get the ball rolling on her passport application. We are getting married in December and she has to be there!

Thanks!!!

glad you saw this because the sooner you get going the less stressful it is. There are so many options it's just a matter of looking in to it early so you aren't worried.

good luck.

maybe we should have a sticky thread about grandmas that have deleyed birth certificates. it seems to be a common issue. I'll try to write something up.
