Change italian birth certificate?

Postby mike123 » 20 Sep 2010, 19:17

So I have some excellent news. they found my Great grandmothers birth certificate but, it was from 3 years earlier than we thought and it was spelled Verdescha not verdeschi. what is the NYC consulate going to say about it? and more importantly what can I do?

Mike, if I recall correctly, your great-grandmother is not in your direct-lineage. That being the case, it is most likely that the NYC consulate will never even ask to see this document.

I wouldn't worry about it.

I know and yes you are correct however, I am hearing horror stories of the NYC consulate they are strict which is understandable. what can be done if anything at all and the researcher sent me a scanned copy and said the consulate would accept that . is that true?

Carmine is right. Worry about discrepancies in the direct line. They will likely not even look at her documents.
