If Italian ancestor lived outside of Italy or US?

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.

If Italian ancestor lived outside of Italy or US?

If an Italian ancestor lived outside of the US (not Italy) for a few years do you need any documents from that country? Or is the US proof of Alien status enough?

Yes, you would need proof that your ancestor also did not naturalize in that country.

Thank you, ...I imagine the same would apply to applicant, those who have done a lot traveling or needed to reside in another country short term for work would have a lot of paperwork to do.
