Yep.
Just hoping now that the state didn't lose their records, like the feds did in 1973.

Yup. Can't trace my Dad's roots as the courthouse burned down for his grandparents information. My records were easy to find. I just went to the websites of the county of occurrence.

I still have my 84 year old birth certificate.

When we moved back to Florida 3 years ago we just went to the Motor Vehicle office with our licenses, titles and registrations from Arizona. They checked the numbers on the vehicles and gave us new documents. They also took our money.

It's a lot easier for men as they don't change their names.

Shouldn't be losing track of essential documents like this. If you don't have a secure place in your house they could be kept in a save deposit box. When I move they are with me 24/7, not packed in a box somewhere! Can't really imagine not being able to produce one or more of them or not predicting they were going to be needed in a new state.

I think some states are also implementing automatic voter registration through the DMV, so you have to provide the same documents you'd need to vote.

Apparently I'm not perfect. Having lived in Minnesota for 60 of my 64 years, it didn't really concern me until that 63rd year when I decided to move to a different state.

Kinda where I am on this. Didn't need it as long as I stayed in TX, and yes, TX has one of those stars beside my name, so it is "enhanced" but for some reason they don't want to accept it and just trade it for an AR license. Well, I can order another one.

Good news is that all of my wife's documentation was in her safe deposit box. She kept up with it all these years, since she is of Mexican heritage and didn't want any questions...

So now, having grown up in the midwest and served for 20+ in the AF and worked for 13+ for the Army, I find that I am "undocumented"
LoL.
