Question about Italian Birth Certificates

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Question about Italian Birth Certificates

Postby Mike Mo » 11 Aug 2011, 23:05

Sorry this is a duplicate and I put it in the wrong section. First time using this system.

Hello everyone,

I'm new here and I just got a copy of my GGF's birth certificate but it looks like it's printed on toilet paper.

Is this the only birth certificate I would use for my GGF when trying to apply for citizenship through decent ? Or are there 2 different types that I might want to use?

Hi, Mike.

Your question is answered in your other post. The document you have is perfectly acceptable.

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)
