I read the parameters on how to "qualify" for Italian dual citizenship, and it stated: My mothers father must have been an Italian citizen at the time of her birth (in America). Am I reading this correctly?
Grandfather (Italian citizen) -> Mother (Born while Grandfather is Italian citizen IN America) -> Me
You may qualify, but it depends on your birth date. This was taken from the San Francisco consulate's website:
Please note: a person born before 01/01/1948 can claim Italian citizenship only from his/her father (who was not a naturalized citizen of another country before his/her child’s birth), and a woman can transfer citizenship only to her children born after 01/01/1948 (if she was not a naturalized citizen of another country before her child’s birth).
I am searching for information on Virginio Pontoni (*1878 Variano, Udine) and his wife Smeriglia Benedetta Del Ponte (*1879 Variano, Udine). A family rumor say that they moved to Argentina possibly in the 20th. Any hints or ideas how to find the place where they moved to? thanks André
