Birth Cert.

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Birth Cert.

Postby corrado » 13 Jan 2010, 16:10

My cousin's son is working on piggybacking on my application. We shre the same grandfather (born in Italy) but he then has a different line to go though from there. He has the records for his gradfather ( my uncle), but he is having trouble getting his grandmothers BC. I found her in the 1920 census, as I would expect. Here name is Virginia Beese, born dec. 11, 1919. What should we do now? Is this a show stopper?

Where is he applying? Not all consulates require documents for "extra" persons; when I applied in NYC in mid-2008, they only required documents for myself -> my father -> my grandfather. They did not want any documents for my mother or grandmother.

I believe that even those consulates which request these documents are somewhat flexible on the subject.

I asked my cousin's son to write to Social Security and tell them he is trying to find out her birth date, in a pinch we will have to use that plus I am research a baptismal record. As you say she is not in direct line, so this should not be a show stopper. we hope.

Do you know where she lived (in the US) and approximately when/where she died?

I looked at the cook county clerks on-line geneology search, we are out of luck there is no birth cert. Will the census work? If we find a baptismal record? or is this entire thing unnecessary?

It's a tough call. The way I looked at it when I was in the process, I already spent $xxx, what difference does another $yy make?

For $27, he can go to this Social Security site and order a photocopy of her application for a social security card. This should show - in her own handwriting - her date and place of birth as well as her legal name.

Just an FYI. Not all birth/Death certificates are listed online in the Chicago Genealogy Search. Nor are all listed in the Family search.

The best way is to actually make an actual request for the birth record. Until I requested my father's birth record did it ever show up online. They found it in some warehouse the city uses. While searching for his they also found other family members as well.
