GGF Citizenship

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.

GGF Citizenship

Post by scherzo » 24 Aug 2009, 18:10

I have an unbroken patrilineal line through my GGF but have run into two snags that I'm unsure about:

1) My GF served in WWII for the US, does this qualify as a renunciation of Italian citizenship?

2) I have the dates and places of birth for my my GGF & GGM but don't know their parents' names. Is it okay to still send a request for their birth certificates to the Officio dello Stato Civile?

1) if your GGF no renounced to italian citizenship ( no US naturalized) when your GF was born, well also if your GF served in WWII for the US, this is no important; the important is that when your GF was born, your GGF was no naturalized..
2) you can send the request; the birthplace and birthdate is enough...

Suanj is absolutely correct. If Americans serving in the U.S. military ended the Italian line, there would be very few people eligible for Italian citizenship.
