Name change documents

Postby gauss200 » 23 Mar 2015, 07:30

I have found that I qualify for Italian Citizenship on both my mother's side (because I was born after 1948 and my mother was born before my grandfather became naturalized) and my father's side. However, there were some significant name changes. Fiorindo Manente became Fred Mandy (to avoid discrimination in 1920's) and Rosaria became Rose. Vincenza became Jane, Salvatore became Sam and Cicchirillo became Chickerella. There are fairly detailed census showing the name evolution etc at the same house with the same children names. But what documents are required for the dual citizenship process and where does one get such documents if the Census are not sufficient. Thanks and sorry if this question has already been answered.
