Delayed Birth Certificate

Post by jennabet » 03 Mar 2011, 22:51

Supplying just a simple foto copy to the consulate for the non direct line was actually our biggest challenge. It turns out this document is a Delayed Birth Certificate from the state of Oklahoma, which did not require certificates be issued at time of birth back in 1917. Before we learned about this, we thought he might have been born in Mexico.

Apparently requirements to obtain the Delayed Certificate were:

1. Affidavit signed by older female member of the family that document was listed as having been signed before a named notary public.

2. 1920 US Federal Census record issued by US Dept. of Congress, Washington, DC.

3. Voting Registration record from Registrar's office signed by Registrar.

Requirements of the Individual were:

1. Family Bible record and PO Box or street mailing address

2. Insurance policy issued by reputable company

3. Census record issued by US Dept. of Congress

Other docs whichh could have been used

Religious records, school records, military records, driver's license, divorce cases w. child custody awards, naturalization papers and others for proving a person's age

Thank God this is the non-direct line. If we had decided to apply in my own Comune, the documents would have been submitted there and as is standard procedure, forwarded to the Minister of the Interior in Rome who makes the ultimate decision.
