What is a Stato di Famiglia?

Postby Kaplunski » 13 Apr 2016, 14:48

Hi all,

I'm looking for some information on exactly what a Stato di Famiglia signifies. I understand that it lists the head of a particular family and their direct relatives (i.e. wife and children) but does this document necessarily mean that all persons listed on the document are Italian citizens?

I have a 'Certifica' from the Comune di Udine which appears to be a Stato di Famiglia and lists all members of the family, including my grandmother as a child of the family. My grandmother was born in Tolmino, Italy but this city became part of Yugoslavia after the war and subsequently now part of Slovenia. Is her listing on a Stato di Famiglia sufficient proof that she was in fact an Italian citizen? [I know she was an Italian citizen - born in Italy to Italian parents - but need documentation to prove this for the purposes of a citizenship application].

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried writing for her Italian birth record?
Perhaps to Tolmin, Slovenia?

Yes, I already have a copy of the birth certificate but it is issued by a Slovenian authority as Tolmino is now part of Slovenia and not Italy.

Does anyone know what the Stato di Famiglia actually represents? Do you have to be an Italian citizen to be listed on one? Surely someone has done research on this before ....

I don't think that's enough. A "Stato di famiglia" just lists all people living with the head, no regards to their citizenship (like USA censuses)
