Question: Is there any way I can discover on-line, without contacting the US government, the number and date of issue of a passport issued to me in the name of Martha N. Flagg approximately 40 years ago? I have the "...Lost Passport" form (DS-64) that requests the date and number. Only I don't know them, and can't even guess.
Response: Unfortunately no. Information about your passport is not available to the general public for obvious reasons--for privacy and national security reasons. I would suggest however that you attach a brief note to your application regarding your lost passport and when it was approximately issued so that they can use that information to try to locate your previous information.
