Re: Brick Wall regarding Great Grandfather

You should also note that Antenati has posted the birth records from Cercemaggiore. I checked for Michele Rosa for the years 1866, 1867, and 1868, but his birth record does not appear. There are several Rosa’s but none for Michele. It is likely, if the date is correct, that he was born in a nearby t...

Re: Brick Wall regarding Great Grandfather

Also the odds are that Michele’s mother was named Lena (Maddelena). Note that the second female child was named Clara (for Clarissa, Mary Ellsworth’s mother). The first female child would have been named for Michele’s mother.

That would mean the 1864 birth I noted above is not accurate.

Re: Children born in U.S before father's naturalization

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. Every applicant must apply with documents tracing to his/her last Italian-born ancestor. I know it makes no sense, but your daughter would need to apply through her own 1948 case.

Sadly, common sense is often not so common with the application process.

Re: Claiming Italian Citizenship

What we often call a 1948 case, is simply a case that challenges Italian law which did not permit a woman to pass citizenship to her child before 1948. After 1948, the law changed, and this restriction was dropped. Court challenges have been uniformly successful because, although consulates refuse t...

Re: Claiming Italian Citizenship

That’s true. But unfortunately, according to the law, he immediately derived US citizenship when he set foot on US soil, where his father lived and had already naturalized. The naturalization was derived because he was still a minor when he arrived. The census is often inaccurate. Take a good look a...

Re: Claiming Italian Citizenship

In the first scenario: when Ignazio naturalized in 1926, his son, Salvatore, who was a minor when Ignazio naturalized, also naturalized. The 1952 date is likely not a naturalization, but a Certificate of Citizenship, confirming his 1928 derivative naturalization. The path through Pietra is possible,...

Re: Claiming Italian Citizenship

It seems that you may have several possibilities. If you provide birth and naturalization dates, it will be easy to determine which path would work best.

Re: For those who obtained Italian citizenship - how is your middle name registered?

A legal name change only makes sense if you do it in the US before you submit an application for recognition. I was forced to do this because the name I was using all my life was spelled differently from the name on my birth certificate. I legally changed my name to the spelling I had been using, an...
