Town of Amblar, Italy, was Amblar, Austria, before WWI

Postby ciaochaz » 03 Dec 2007, 22:34

Hi All,
My great grandfather was born in Amblar when the town was Austrian. Now Amblar is Italian. I would like to get citizenship through him (since I can't through my Italian great grandmother). Does anyone know of any loop-holes or laws that would allow a parent from this transferred region to pass down citizenship?

Thanks
Charlie

Because of the Austrian factor prior to WW I, the process is a bit more involved. Take a look at this site ---

for some information on the procedures. There are some readers on here that may be able to help with documents, etc. I can also put you in touch with a contact I have in Trentino.

Thanks Sal, that helps.
It seems that a law was passed in 2000, that might allow me to get citizenship. I'll have to visit the consule in los angeles and get the specifics.
