Certificate of Italian Citizenship

Postby jmrmjor » 04 Apr 2005, 12:34

When reading the web site information for the Philadelphia Consulate Office, I saw for the first time that we must prove the Italian Citizenship of our ancestor with a Certificate of Citizenship. Does anyone know when this record is created? I see agencies that offer to get the birth certificate for you for a fee but I do not see them saying anything about the Citizenship Certificate.

Thanks for your insight and advice

Michael,

I got this certificate in person from the comune in Italy. It was very easy.

I know that the consulate website lists this certificate as necessary. I also noticed that some of these websites which obtain birth certificates from Italy do not list the citizenship certificate. What my comune gave me was a document that said something like "up until 1920, he was an Italian citizen." This means that there is no record of him there after this date (well, he wasn't there).

If you want to go through one of these sites, I suggest e-mailing them and asking. Otherwise you have a definite reason to go to Italy!

You do not have to pay a service to obtain documentation for you.
You can request the documentation yourself by writing to the town of origin. Of course, going in person would be much more enjoyable...... :wink:
