Correcting parents' names on marriage licenses?

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.

Correcting parents' names on marriage licenses?

Postby aulus » 04 Jun 2011, 03:12

On both my GF's and F's marriage licenses, their parents' names are the anglicized versions (e.g. Joe instead of Giuseppe), but their own names are correct. Is this something the consulate will take issue with, or is it okay as long as the husband's/wife's names are correct?

Consulates vary on this point. Where will you be applying?

Are all the discrepancies clear-cut and consistent? Maria/Mary, Vincenzo/Vincent, for example?

Applying at San Francisco. And yes, the discrepancies are pretty clear and consistent, Giuseppe/Joe and Francesco/Frank.
