In every report I have seen, including my own, the New York consulate has neither asked for nor looked at the birth or death certificates of persons not in the direct-line. My line was Self -> Father - Grandfather; I did not need to submit my mother's birth certificate nor my grandmother's birth/death certificates.

Which was a good thing: my mother's New York birth certificate was absolutely riddled with errors, and my ancestral comune was never able to locate my grandmother's birth certificate.

I know I just don't want to get there and be the only person they ever ask for it . It would suck to go there in prepared and have to wait another year for an appointment :?

They never asked for my GM birth certificate. The only reason they wanted my GGM was to double check an error on a direct line document. Don't be worried, it's most likely not even necessary.
