jure sanguinis from grandfather born in Trieste

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.

jure sanguinis from grandfather born in Trieste

Postby alfredogarcia » 28 Oct 2011, 14:43

Hello. I was considering looking into Italian citizenship through my grandfather who was born in Trieste in the 19th century. Here is a timeline of what has happened.

grandfather born in Trieste, Austria, 1894
grandfather immigrated to Argentina 1911
grandfather immigrated to Peru 193x
mother born in Peru, 1942
mother immigrated to Peru in 1970
I was born in USA, 1975
grandfather passed away in Peru, 1977 (never naturalized as a citizen of another country)
mother naturalized USA, 1983

Now, if this lineage qualifies, there is an issue that I think the house of records containing my grandfather's birth certificate was destroyed in the war. I am told that baptism papers can be used instead.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Italy annexed Trieste on July 16, 1920. Those who were citizens of Trieste on that day were considered Italian citizens. What I am not sure of is if the immigration to Argentina would have affected this citizenship or if they would apply the rules similar to the March 17, 1861 unification. I think this would be a matter of Austrian citizenship law.

If you would have applied before last Dec 22nd, you would have had your italian citizenship. Yes, there was a the italian law, L. 379/2000 that gave the opportunity to descendants of those people (who belonged to austrian hungarian empireup to 16 july 1920) to become italian citizens. The law was on rule for ten years from 2000 to 2010, now those descendants who have ancestors who were born on those territories can not apply anymore, I hope it helps, bye Riccardo
