I know this question comes up time and again, but I have to ask it in relation to my situation.
I would like to claim dual citizenship - US/Italian.
My maternal grandparents were from Abruzzo and emigrated to the US in 1905 & 1906. They never became US citizens.
My mother was born in 1921. I was born in 1953.
I have my mother's birth certificate and the Italian certificates stating the dates/places of my grandparents' birth. I have my birth certificate.
(Just in case the question comes up: My father's parents were not Italian. I do not consider myself of anything but Italian descent.)
When we were in Italy in June, I tried to get information, but the clerks there kept telling me I had to go elsewhere. So, I'm lost as to what to do now. My Italian language instructor told me I had everything I needed. I'm not so sure.
Can anyone help me, please?
