Need birth and wedding certificates for Italian citizenship

Postby mrmchoohaa » 22 Nov 2015, 01:41

As it turns out, today I found out that I can apply for Italian citizenship because my great-grandfather was born in Italy.

I really want to do as much on my own as possible, but I've run into so many roadblocks now.

He was from Bolognetta, as was his wife. They married there, had three sons there. I have their street address, and an abstract birth cert for one of their sons.


I'm about to tear my hair out because I don't know where else to go.

I'd prefer NOT to pay 3123527342 dollars to someone that MAY or may not accomplish the task.

Any input would be amazing.

Thank you very much, as I am sure you've hear all this a million times from a million different people.

Howdy.

Off the top of my head; Schiro, Geraci, Manzella.

I'm also related to Buteras!

I know that my great-grandfather was from Bolognetta. 36 Via Lo Brutto.

I'm desperate to get my citizenship, as my fiance is in the EU, and it's very difficult to move there and work, otherwise.
