Great grandpa from Naples. Eligible for Italy Citizenship?

Post by gvandora » 30 Nov 2006, 18:26

My maternal great grandfather was born in Italy in late 1800s. He immigrated to the US around the turn of the century. My grandfather was born here in 1920s. My mother was born here in 1948. I was born in 1982. Am I eligible for italian citizenship juris sanguis?

According to those sites, it looks like I'm qualified assuming. I just want to someone else to agree with me. ;)

I just need to make sure my great grandpa didn't get naturalized before my grandpa was born.

If naturalization occured after 1906, you can send this request in to check for documentation:

If your great grandfather was born in the late 1800's and came to the U.S. at the turn of the century, it is likely that he came with his parents. You need to check, not only his naturalization date, but also that of his father. If his father naturalized when your great grandfather was still a minor, your great grandfather naturalized with him.

The US Census records will have the information of whether or not (and when) your great grandfather was naturalized. That is how I found out.

Did you check those?
