Records from Italy

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.

Records from Italy

Postby DJP1812 » 18 Jan 2011, 21:35

Hi All - Quick question,

I just received my first official record from Italy and have a concern. The record is a birth extract for a grandparent that I am using for my citizenship application. The piece of paper has no raised stamp, just a signature and two regular 'ink' stamps.

Will this suffice for my application? Does anyone know if Italy communes use a 'raised' stamp?

It is official since they sent it to me directly.

Thanks,
D

Another issue is that it is just a typed letter... Not the actual birth certificate.

It is the Estratto per riassunto dai registri degli atti nascita.

What you have is typical of the birth records from Italy. They are totally acceptable for citizenship purposes.

I also received the Estratto from Calabria for my fiancee's grand-father. I was surprised to see it in this form. When I did my own case ten years ago, I went over there to get my grand-father's birth certificate and the Sindaco typed it up right in front of me, slapped a stamp on it (not raised) and handed it to me. It was perfectly fine for the consulate, as is the Estratto.

Another thought.

I received two documents through email from an Italian commune. The commune told me that email is good enough for certification. They are a Birth Certificate and a Certificate of Italian Citizenship for my GGF.

Can I print these out and turn them in for my application? Both have stamps and are signed by an officer.

Thanks,
D
