IT HAPPENED!! RECEIVED PASSAPORTO TODAY!

Postby cdevita » 10 Nov 2010, 01:29

This was a fabulous journey. Lots of fun and learned SO much about my family. I feel as though I have brought my family full circle. I began my process on October 12, 2009 and today, Nov. 9, 2010, I received my Italian passport in the mail, I was very lucky because the Italian Consulate happened to come to Phoenix 2 weeks ago. I initially had an appt to go to LA on Nov. 19th. It was VERY easy. They took my fingerprints, stapled my docs in a particular order and had me mail them with a MO and a SASE for FEDEX. TWO days later they were turned around and back to me!! I couldn't believe when I received the package. I thought I must have filled out something wrong, or didn't sign something and they were sending everything back for an adjustment. BUT NO!

Keep up the good work and yes, it does happen
...Ciao

Ciao. Congratulations. Anything you ever wanted to know about why your family did things they way they did, you will learn in Italy. It's all in the Genes -- the Italian Genes.

It's the most incredible feeling to actually have that passport in your hand. When I opened my first bank account in Italy, I asked if I could have a credit card and the manager said, "You can have anything you want from this bank". WOW! I was in like Flint.
