Effective of WWII and Public Employment on JS Process?

Postby wcladley » 16 Jul 2016, 07:51

Hi All,

I recently discovered the possibility of citizen through JS and did some research to discover, provisionally, that I qualify as follows: GGF (b. in Sicily 1884, naturalized in US 1934)->GF (b. 1923, never renounced)->F (never renounced)-Me. My only question is as follows: My grandfather served in the Navy in WWII and then worked as a public employee (school teacher) and my father was also professor at a state university. The Italian embassy states that citizenship can be lost if:

any Italian citizen who voluntarily enlists in the armed forces of a foreign government or accepts a government post with a foreign State, despite express prohibition by Italian law; any Italian citizen who has served during a state of war with a foreign country, or held a government post or acquired citizenship in that State

On the one hand, it seems like a lot of people who have done this have had ancestors who fought in WWII, but I have found no definitive answer on how this affects eligibility. I have seen nothing on whether Italy considers working in a public school or university a "government post with a foreign state."

I am hoping to get a bit clarity on this before investing the time and money into getting all of my docs in order.

Thanks to anyone who could provide some guidance.
