Differences in names on American birth certificates and other documents

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.

Differences in names on American birth certificates and other documents

Postby ashphonia » 14 Jul 2015, 22:30

Hello! Does anyone have any experience with documents that contain several different variations of names? The correct name for my grandfather should be Luigi (or Louis) Terazzi, however his birth certificate from Ohio has the name spelled as Louis Taratzi (and also his parents with the 'Taratzi' spelling, while another document has his name as Luigi Perazza.

I am attempting to put together all of my documents to obtain dual citizenship through his parents (both Italian citizens), and am wondering what I might need to do in order to prove that these are all the same person.

Thank you,

Must tell you that not everyone can. I appreciate something like this.
