Issues with Grandmum's Bith Certificate

Postby Cissii » 27 May 2005, 02:16

My grandmother was birthed by a midwife and no birth certificate was ever recorded for her. I have all other documentations necessary for dual citizenship, as well as her christening papers issued exactly 1 month after her birth. Will this suffice? Is there any other paperwork necessary to verify the validity of the bith date listed on her christening papers?

Please assist and Thank You for your time.

If you post the year and town of her birth in Italy, you may get a better answer. Generally, in Italy all births were recorded, even if delivered by a midwife.

Was this in Italy or the United States? (Your grandmother's birth I mean)

This was in the United States. My link is to my great grandfather, whom I have all the paperwork for. Curiously, all of his children born after my grandmother (the oldest) was filed. It's quite aggrivating as no post-birth certificate may be made due to her recent death (the person must be living to have such created).

That's what I thought you meant. I would call the consulate and inquire. Possibly a baptism certificate would suffice, if you could get some sort of Church Apostile from the Bishop or something.
