Re: married name of mother on marriage license application

Making a correction to your own marriage license should not be difficult, and doing so would definitely eliminate any potential problems. Best of luck.

Re: Some Comunes Refusing Citizenship Applications

Without question, the majority of Italians are at least nominally Catholic, although only about a third actively practice. Constitutionally, people are free to practice any religion they choose; and, in fact, even the Pope welcomes those who are not Catholic.

Re: married name of mother on marriage license application

I can’t imagine this would be a problem. If the license application asked for his mother’s name, he correctly listed her legal name, which in the US is often different from her birth name. The consulate is well aware that it is quite common in the US for a woman to take her husband’s name when she m...

And why would this topic be worthy of a website like this where we are all learning just how connected we all are?
An excellent question!

Re: Citizenship vs Naturalization

Your gf lost his citizenship the day his father naturalized. He naturalized with his father. When someone receives citizenship through another’s naturalization, it is called derivative citizenship. Children who receive citizenship in this manner do not receive naturalization certificates. Thus, late...

Re: Some Comunes Refusing Citizenship Applications

Not every citizen votes in every election, but the government works for all citizens, voters and non-voters. When my father was still living, his citizenship was unrecognized, but it was his citizenship that made me eligible. By recognizing my citizenship, Italy acknowledged my father’s right to cit...

Re: Some Comunes Refusing Citizenship Applications

Documentation? Most people who apply in Italy use a service. It isn’t necessary to apply at one’s ancestral comune, so the service guides applicants to those comuni familiar with the process and that are willing to take applicants. Why, jennebet, are you so antagonistic to people who simply want to ...

Re: NYC Birth Certificate - Update father's name from Joseph to Giuseppe on Birth Certificate

I can’t imagine why you will need to change anything. Joseph is the literal English translation of Giuseppe. This should not be a problem.

Re: How strict are the consulates with spellings and Anglicized names?

You know, of course, that here are no guarantees, but the death certificates are the least important of the required documents. Since the information provided is obviously not self reported, and the person reporting is grieving and possibly confused, they are subject to error. I doubt the consulate ...
