Re-posting because I forgot to include a key question in my first post.
I obtained "jure sanguinis" via the San Francisco consulate a few years ago. My nephew is currently pursuing citizenship via the LA Consulate. This forum was a great help and a comfort during that time!
I was told that the LA Consulate will simply refer to my San Francisco application for all the information up to my nephew's and his parent's info. I am advising him.
My questions: 1) The LA Consulate has forms for "ascendants". I have forgotten requirements for those forms. Does my nephew need to fill our an "ascendant" form for *all* ascendants in the line (In this case GGF - GF - Mother), or just the primary ascendant, who emigrated from Italy? (note: I already understand that one must use different forms for "living" and "deceased" descendents.)
2) When listing cities of residence on form 4, does my nephew need to list only American cities that his GGF lived in from age 18, or ALL cities, including Italian cities from the age of 18?
3) Last, is any of the above information even necessary for my nephew to list, because San Francisco has my completed file? LA said they simply refer to my San Francisco file for all information approved by SF. I have everything in there, and approved, except for the information about my nephew's mother. (not sure if his mother needs to be included as an ascendant - see question #1, above)
