Naturalized < 1912

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.

Naturalized < 1912

Post by bnqcsac » 30 Jul 2012, 02:47

I've come about lots of info about the pre July 1, 1912 naturalization rule but nothing in the last few years. Most stuff on the web I've read concerns the SF Consulate's interpretation of the 1912 rule.



GGF born Italy, immigrated 1886.
GF born NY 1893
GGF naturalized 1897

Are there still enforcement issues concerning SF (I am in SF's jurisdiction) or is this nationwide now?

Thanks, just wanting to get some fresh info. Haven't seen a post on the web re:this timestamped in the last couple years.

Check the "Consulate FAQs" section at There is a thread on the 1912 rule that will offer some guidance on where the rule was and was not enforced.

From what was posted, it appears that Philadelphia does not disqualify applicants with pre-1912 naturalizations. Latest report: 2012.
