Vital Records required?

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.

Vital Records required?

Postby Luca722 » 02 Jan 2008, 00:29

I've heard that the Consulate in Boston only accepts certified certificates from Vital Statistics. Is this true? I have long form, certified records from the cities/towns themselves.

Thanks,
Luca

If your certified documents can be apostilled, then I'm pretty sure Boston will accept them. But the Consulate has the last word, of course.
The link is to Mass. Sec. State--who does the apostilles.

Hi Peggy, thanks for the link!

It seems like my documents can be apostilled as they were signed by the city/town clerks. I'll confirm with the consulate.

Best,
Luca
