When my grandmother got her naturalization, she had to hand over her original birth certificate from Italy over to the office in Newark, New Jersey. They kept the birth certificate. Is this a common practice? This was in 1974. I'll be calling them tomorrow when they open but was wondering if anyone else has been able to get a copy from a situation like this directly from the office. If I can, this would save a ton of time having to contact Italy at all.
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.
