Help--certified copies from a circuit court?

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.

Help--certified copies from a circuit court?

Postby dpalma4 » 29 Apr 2008, 13:34

So the good news is my GGF naturalized in July 1915, after GF's birth in Jan 1914. But I'm having a hard time getting a certified copy. NARA was very helpful in sending the Soundex card for my GGF, showing that naturalization took place in the Circuit court of Cook county. They told me to request a certified copy from there.

So today I called to find out about getting certified copies, and the archivist's response was "This isn't for that Italian dual citizenship thing! The consultates should know that only the federal office gives out certified copies for naturalization."

Is this true? What should I do?

I received a certified copy of my g-grandfather's naturalization record from the Massachusetts Archives. Try the state archive office.
