census records

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 believe you can ask for census after 1930 here:

The 1940 census will not be available to the general public until 2012. Prior to that date, you can obtain copies of individual sections only if you yourself are a named individual on that particular record. See http://www.1930census.com/1940_census.php for more info.

Regardless, from a purely technical perspective, it should not be necessary to provide proof of marriage in any way, shape, or form. For jure sanguinis purposes, you do not need to be a "legitimate" child, you only need to prove that you have Italian blood coursing through your veins.

Hi, you can explain better?
on ancestry.com, the 1940 and 1950 censuses are no available ( and 1960... equally!), only in some state, it are the substitutes ( phone directory); if you can provide more details...

Thank you for responses. I thought the same thing about the marriage record but on the consulates they state that they want all documents.Iam going to try and do this without it and see what happens.

Suanj,
My grnadparents were married between 1940 and 1950.they lived in philadelphia and southern new jersey doing those years.I am not sure the exact date at all when they could have been married.they are both deceased.i thought maybe having the census would give me the answers but if it's not available there is nothing i can do. thank you again

From the site I wrote in my previous message:

http://www.census.gov/genealogy/www/dat ... index.html

Genealogy Data: Age Search Service
The Census Bureau provides an "age search" service to the public. We will search the confidential records from the Federal population censuses of 1910 to 2000 and issue an official transcript of the results (for a congressionally mandated fee).

NOTE: Information can be released only to the named person, his/her heirs, or legal representatives.

Individuals can use these transcripts, which may contain information on a person’s age, sex, race, State or country of birth, and relationship to the householder, as evidence to qualify for social security and other retirement benefits, in making passport applications, to prove relationship in settling estates, in genealogy research, etc., or to satisfy other situations where a birth or other certificate may be needed but is not available.

For questions regarding the age search service, please contact the National Processing Center at (812) 218-3046. Their fax number is (812) 288-3371.

Very good, Laura.

The fee appears to be $65 to search for one person on one census. More info: http://www.census.gov/genealogy/www/dat ... index.html
