I have the NARA "No record found Letter" for my grandfather
ad am waiting for the BCIS to send me a similar letter.
Has anyone successfully used the NARA leter "No rec found of Nat"
to show that their ancestor was the child of an Italan citizen?
( In my case it is to prove my father was a ciotizen since my GF was never naturalized.)
I have heard you need the BCIS letter but
I'm not sure it's really needed.
also, how strict are the Italians about spelling changes-
My GF was ": Michele" in Italy and that got americanized to Michael.
Actual experinces with Italian consulates rather than speculation are most sought.
