Birth certificate question

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.

I guess my main question is will these have to be amended and how do you do that in NJ? Your lucky if they even send you documents in the first place no less correct them. Although these are small issues. My consulate is Philly

Hi Alicia

Here is a link to NJ vital records about amending:

I can't find it, but I believe I read somewhere that the state will not amend historical vital records. Good luck. If you do try to amend, please let me know if you are successful.

Im not sure if they will amend something that old. Vital records of NJ stinks in general. I just had a talk with them recently about how I requested a death certificate 3 months ago and I know they got it because they cashed the check. She went on to say shell list a complaint but doesnt know when Ill get the certificate, maybe 8 to 10 weeks. So all said and done it will be a total of 5 months to get a death certificate!

I have waited 6 months for NJ genealogy requests for vital records. They do cash the check, but you wait and wait and wait.

Tell me about it. Then when I called I got a total attitude meanwhile they took my money. Then I sent them a different request and it came back no record. I realized it was off by one year. So I asked being it was only off by a year but the name, month, date, etc was all right can they just send me the right one. She said no and start and pay all over! Ive had people at archives and libraries here in NJ say "Everyone knows NJ takes the money and sends you a "no record" because they dont even bother looking". So thats what Im up against.

Debbie,

I just spoke to vital records and according to the woman I spoke to I can amend a document from 1906 and 1918 as long as I have documentation. I just wanted to let you know.
