Jure Sanguinis for granddaughter

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.

Jure Sanguinis for granddaughter

Postby BWest57 » 01 Sep 2014, 23:07

Any comments are greatly appreciated. Here is my situation

GF came from Italy in 1906 and naturalized in 1911

GM came from Italy in 1912, married GF in 1914. I see on a census record that she is a naturalized citizen through marriage.

My father was born in 1923.
GM died July 1948
I'm born 1957

Do I qualify for dual citizenship?

Also, in case it is relevant. GM's mother and father came to US and didn't naturalize.

Unfortunately, you do not qualify through your gf. The citizenship line was broken with your grandfather's naturalization. Even if your father was born before your grandfather's naturalization, you would likely have had a 1912 issue.

However, since your gm naturalized through marriage, you may be able to qualify through her. This, however would require a lawsuit in Italy.

Thank you for your response. I'm not sure I'm willing to proceed with a lawsuit. I will have to think carefully about it. It is nice to know I have options.

It's not at all difficult, but it may be more costly. Check out the 1948 thread at www.italiancitizenship.freeforums.org
