Thank you for all this information! Even if this isn't the complete answer, this is certainly more information than I was expecting, and it tells me a great deal.

comment Do I need to be rebaptized to take communion in a Catholic Church if I have no proof of my original baptism?
@Caleb In hindsight, I do understand how my question could be too localized since I doubt many others have encountered my exact situation.

@PeterTurner Thank you for the advice. I assumed I would need to attend confession for attending other services, and I appreciate the mention of it as well. I highly doubt someone in the states could obtain my original baptismal record, even if it still exists, because I was born during a conflict in which churches, among others, were targeted. I will ask, however. Thank you again.

@DanAndrews I looked online briefly but could not find anything definitive. Through lack of an opportunity I have yet to find a church in which to ask. I travel a great deal and have only lived in the states a few months. I will delete the question if deemed necessary, however.

@DavidStratton Once I find a church in which I feel comfortable, I presume I can speak to a priest and resolve it. I wanted to ask because the procedure for obtaining documentation from my home country is somewhat difficult. I doubt that said documentation still exists, for that matter.
