NEED HELP STARTING SEARCH

Postby tomatopie2012 » 25 Aug 2012, 04:43

Hello everyone,
I would like to see if I qualify, as a US citizen, to get an italian passport. I know my grandfather or my father needed to have been an italian citizen. My grandfather came from Italy. I don't know if he became a US citizen. From Ellis Island records, I know the ship he came over on, the year, etc. My father's birth records are not showing up in the town in the US I thought he was born in. He could even have been born in Italy. I don't know. How do get started on finding naturalization forms, etc.?
Thank you!

I am understanding correctly, to obtain my Italian passport I need to determine if my grandfather because a naturalized US citizen prior to my dad being born. Is this correct?
If so, how and where do I find this information? Seems I need to access naturalization records but I'm having difficulty. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Nicolas,
knowing the name and year of birth and where your grandfather lived in USA, we can have a better idea when he naturalized... on his ship's manifest ( arrival in USA) must be the marking of naturalization...(if he naturalized)..

yes it is correct... but before of to obtain italian passport, the italian citizenship must be recognized from Italy by Italian Consulate in USA..
and for that you must apply for recognition of dual citizenship for italian blood right by your italian ancestor...
abt that you can inform in the Italian Consulate where you are resident....
when all required documents are ok and the Italy recognized to you the italian citizenship by your italian ancestor, you can obtain the italian passport...

abt the naturalization of your italian ancestor immigrated in USA, you can read here

or .. maybe we can help, if you can provide us the name, birth date and where lived your italian ancestor, searching in some database availables on ancestry.com
