Dual Citizenship Eligibility?

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.

Dual Citizenship Eligibility?

Postby derekbosia » 15 Jan 2011, 19:53

I am curious to find out whether or not I am eligible for dual citizenship. My Granfathers grandfather on my paternal side was born in Italy and so was my grandmothers father. Neither of them, nor has anyone in my family, were naturalized. I was wondering if you I could use my grandmothers side of the family, since I have more detailed records, to satisfy the dual citizenship requirements?

You will need to supply birth dates because women were not permitted to pass on citizenship before 1948. You also need to be certain of your greatgrandparents' naturalization status. Despite what you may have heard from family members, research often yields surprising results.
