Belmoro i have the same question/problem. i cant find a marriage record for my great grandfather who came from italy. i have proof that he lived with my great grandmother and that they used the same surname. will that suffice?

from what i've been told it can go either way.depending who you see at the consulate.one person told me that the consulate in miami wasn't phased by not having the marriage cert.i think it just depends.i'm going to try and keep my fingers crossed.all the documents i have support my direct line.
good luck
