Question about filing dates

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.

Question about filing dates

Postby investorhouston » 23 Aug 2012, 16:16

Hi,

I'm applying thru my maternal grandmother with the Houston Consulate.
I've ordered all my documents and have received a few.

I have two questions so far:
1) My grandmother, whom is in the Italian line, was born in 1917 (ggf naturalized 1922), but
the birth cert is filed, in Chicago, in 1930 (after the naturalization). It has the correct 1917 dob. So she was born before but her bc was filed after the naturalization. Would this be a problem?

2) She (my gm) also lied about her age frequently. On the marriage license I just received, it stated her age as 23, when she was in fact 31. It's on the 2nd page and is either the back of the main document, or another slip of paper all together. Would this be a problem?

Thanks for all the help with everything. This is a lengthy, technical process and I've been able to learn how to go about it from reading the posts. A wonderful service. I didn't however, find any forum discussing my specific delayed filing issue.

Grazie e Ciao a tutti 8)

It is the birthdate, not the registration date, that is significant. It doesn't matter what age your gm stated herself to be as long as the birth date is listed correctly on the document.

Question for you investorhouston. Where was your grand-mother born? I ask because it seems odd for her birth to be registered so many years later. Does your GGF's name appear on her birth certificate? Is it possible she's adopted?

Yes, I agree, it does seem a bit odd. I was a little surprised myself.

She was born in Chicago in 1917. Both of my GGPs are on her birth cert and also on her baptismal record, which is a couple days later, and filed on the proper date.
She's the 3rd or 12 children too.

I'm not completely sure, as many of these relatives aren't still living but we think they intended to return to Sicily someday.
