So after calling, I wrote to the courthouse in Indiana for a copy of my marriage certificate, since I have no recollection where my original is -- paid $2 and went to stand in line at the license bureau again.
My amazement was that they claimed to NOT have my lost driver's license issued last year on line anywhere from which to verify --with picture and S.S. number ---though the number would not have been on that newer card, but not in their files either? --so even that would not have worked unless they LOOKED AT MY FACE and compared it to the picture!!! I would think, however, that since they ask you to bring your S.S. card in as one form of ID that they should have my SS number on file!!! Or what's the point??? And if the SS number WAS on file with them since they ask for it as ID, why wouldn't my old card be sufficient even with a different last name??? And they could've asked me to write my maiden name and compared the signature for verification.
Finally, I took a defunct computer printer to be fixed, and the guy called me and said he found my lost driver's license in it and he mailed it back and told me the printer couldn't be fixed as it was too old for parts. It was better than the new one -faster, and had a FAX function, etc --but my husband got the new simpler one free with a camera. Everytime it runs low on ink, it won't function--I don't know how to override its insistance that I replace the cartridge --even though the computer copies are still good enough for my purposes. Seems I'm too frequently running out of one or the other of the many little cartridges in this EPSON system--just when I need copies for CLC!
