how to find out if passport was issued

Question: 10 years ago I went to Cancun as an 18 year old high school student and cant remember if I had to get a passport. Is there a way I can find out if I have already been issued a passport so I may fill out a new application honestly?

Answer: The only way to find out if one was issued in your name is contact the department of state. Since it has been 10 years you can apply for a new one without any problems.
