Re: Qualified for citizenship via grand and/or great grandparents

Once you are recognized, you are entered in the AIRE registry at the consulate. The consulate will send your information to your ancestral comune for registration there. Once they do so, you can request a copy of your birth (marriage) registration from the comune, but it’s not essential to have it.

Re: Qualified for citizenship via grand and/or great grandparents

No, you can’t skip a generation to your gggrandparents who remained in Italy. Yes, your children qualify if you do. I'd add that your children will be automatically Italian citizens after you, if they are minors. If not, they have to go through the same process. (Please correct me, if I'm wrong) Ye...

Re: Italian Citizenship through Residency for Grandson of Italian Born Citizen

One question: Were your grandparents married before your gf naturalized? Otherwise, as you know, you have already met the residency requirement was for naturalization since your gf was Italian. I doubt the death certificate for your father is necessary, but it may be a good idea to check with your c...

Re: Qualified for citizenship via grand and/or great grandparents

You will need to follow the male line before you can even consider a 1948 case through the female line. Your gf was born in 1906 to Italian parents. You need to prove that your GGF was still an Italian citizen when your gf was born. This means that he never naturalized or that he naturalized after 1...

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

This is a strange inconsistency between the consulates and the courts. The consulates correctly consider that the 1912 prevented the loss of citizenship if the father naturalized during the child’s minority, and the child was born in a jus soli country before the date of naturalization. For some rea...

Re: Was my grandmother an Italian citizen?

Not exactly. Before 1948, a woman could hold Italian citizenship, but she could not pass citizenship to her children. Thus, Santos’ mother could have obtained Italian citizenship from her father (who was born to Italian citizens) but not from her mother who although an Italian citizen, could not pas...

Re: Was my grandmother an Italian citizen?

Actually, no. Your mother did NOT lose her Italian citizenship through marriage to a Brazilian. (If she had lost citizenship, you couldn’t qualify despite the citizenship status of grandfather since generation skipping is not permitted). However, before 1948 women could not pass citizenship to their...

Re: Do I qualify?

What was the date of your parents’ marriage? Were you living with your father when he naturalized? I ask the second question because to pass Italian citizenship to his minor child, the child must have been residing with him.

Re: Looking for Grandfather's Naturalization Record

National Archives and Records Administration. They have the federal records of Declarations and Petitions (including Oath). However, I believe I found him as having naturalized in the County of the Bronx in 1930. Record Number 83208. I’m not sure this transmits well, but this is where I found him. G...

Re: Looking for Grandfather's Naturalization Record

In the 1940 census, Evangelista Lorusso (barber) age 40, is listed as living in the Bronx and as naturalized. His wife, Maria, is still listed as “alien.” I’m guessing this is your guy.

You may want to ask NARA to do a records search for you covering the period between his arrival and 1940.

Re: Jure Sanguinis Help

That “I received an original Certificate of Citizenship” messed up my thought that you could just submit the Oath. Sorry.

BTW, Certificate of Citizenship means derivative citizenship not naturalization, adding to the confusion.

Re: Jure Sanguinis Help

Do try that link…you never know. Don’t worry about precedent because Italian courts do not follow precedent as is done in the US. Many many people are applying for dual citizenship, and the lawyers and courts are very busy. Some may be reluctant to take a difficult case when they can make easy money...

Re: Jure Sanguinis Help

I understand your arguments, but the major problem is that you would be, in effect, asking the Italian courts to override a decision made by the US. May I suggest that you post this situation on the Tapatalk Italian Citizenship forum. There are several members there who may be able to offer suggesti...
