Re: 1948 case, proof of naturalization

Actually, the certificate of naturalization and the oath of allegiance prove that the petition was not rejected. Had it been rejected, he would not have taken the oath and would not have received a naturalization certificate. It’s true that Italy does not recognize US law, only it’s own. Thus, altho...

Re: Grandmothers and Jus Sanguinis

As long as a naturalization did not end the citizenship line, you qualify. Your gm, though born before 1948, obtained citizenship through her male line.

Re: Jure sanguinis: What is my best option to take?

Never assume that a petition was followed by an actual naturalization. Any number of things may have delayed or ended the process. Until you find an actual naturalization date, you cannot be sure he actually naturalized. Either maternal line would be fine because both are 1948 cases. That your mater...

Re: Best way to acquire certificates from New York?

Did your ancestors live in NY state or NY City? If the city, marriage and birth certificates can be obtained online (google search). You will also need to have marriage, death and birth documents exemplified and notarized before obtaining the apostille. This can be done by mail, but if you live in N...

Re: Born before Italy

It is quite possible that you qualify. Keep in mind that most Italians who were born on foreign soil did not have their births registered in Italy.

Did anyone naturalize in either Hungary or elsewhere? If so, when? I sent you a PM with more information.

Best of luck.

Emily.

Re: 1948 rule and name change of italian grandparent

If her step-father legally adopted her in Italy, and he was also an Italian citizen, it seems you could qualify through him. Legally adopted minor children of Italian citizens obtained Italian citizenship from their Italian adoptive parents (father at that time). If her Italian birth certificate sta...

Re: Trying to Qualify for Italian Citizenship by Descent - Paternal Side

Based on the census records and the other information you’ve located, it seems reasonable to assume that your gggf never naturalized. However, do continue to search for official documentation. You are applying based on very very old records, and it’s not too surprising that records more than a centu...

Re: Trying to Qualify for Italian Citizenship by Descent - Paternal Side

Apparently the 1915 census was a NY thing. If there was no Texas census taken in 1915, the consulate will want to see the 1920 census since that would be the first census after your gggf’s death. If you can locate a naturalization record for your gggf post 1912, that would be the easiest path for yo...

Re: Trying to Qualify for Italian Citizenship by Descent - Paternal Side

1. Generally, no-naturalization letters from USCIS and NARA and census confirmation is sufficient. In this case, however, there is a problem in that naturalization records were not kept before 1906. Your gggparents indeed may not have naturalized, but they arrived in the US early enough for a natura...

Re: Getting a passport with what proof of Italian citizenship

It seems the letter from the consulate would provide proof only to the consulate that sent it. Another consulate may not find that sufficient. Also you may have some difficulty getting a consulate to issue a passport if you don’t reside in its jurisdiction. The consulates are pretty much focused on ...

Re: Which Consulates overlook the 1912 rule?

Not a 1912 issue, but your gf could not pass citizenship to your father since he was not an Italian citizen when your father was born. However the date your gf married your grandmother is important because there is a possibility that your dad obtained citizenship through her. Two questions: 1. When ...

Re: documents requested re: 1st marriage

Ok, I just reread your post and noted that you are already an Italian citizen. If you are a citizen simply trying to register your current marriage, the position of the consulate is even more outrageous. Definitely, make an appointment to see a consular representative in person. You are an Italian c...

Re: documents requested re: 1st marriage

As both you and jennebet have noted, you could have easily avoided mention of your first marriage. However, now that the consulate is aware of it, they want all the relative paperwork. You can’t unreport what has already been reported, but the divorce decree and “no contest” documents are definitely...
