Baptismal Record in lieu of Birth Certificate

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.

Thanks for your replies. I am glad to hear that if you are born in Italy then that makes you an Italian citizen.

I am pretty sure that my grandfather was born in Rome. On his baptismal record, it gives an address in Rome (an apartment) where he was born.

I hope to one day visit the church that he was christened in and see what I can find...

thanks again!
