Re: Claim to citizenship concerning independent naturalization of a minor

You are correct. It wasn’t until 1975 when the age of majority changed for Italy. I mistyped. In both cases, however, derivative naturalization occurred.

Re: Aunt got hers but Grandma never claimed...help?

It is likely you will need to resubmit all those documents. If it is possible for you and your mom to apply together at the same consulate, you can share. The good news is that your aunt has done all the heavy lifting in terms of locating documents, so all you need do is send for new ones and add yo...

Re: Italian Heritage

Why not begin with a trial membership on ancestry.com Alternately, many libraries offer free access to that site. If your gf naturalized, that would have been when his Italian citizenship ended. But there are also other possibilities, so check in with more details when you find out if and when he na...

There is an entire section in the Tapatalk forum that focuses on the London Consulate.

Looks good.

Once you’ve done your research, campare the lines to see which works best.

Re: Citizenship question

You then seem to have a solid case (albeit 1948) through your ggm. Since she obtained US citizenship by birth in the US and Italian citizenship from her not-yet-naturalized Italian father, she remained a citizen when her child was born. The only potential problem here would be if her father naturali...

Re: Pre-1912 Lack of Naturalization Case

You have a 1948 case if your gm had her child (your mom or dad) before 1948. If after that date, it’s a Consulate application.

Re: Citizenship question

Actually, you DO qualify, but it’s through your ggm, which would make it a 1948 case. When your ggf naturalized in 1913, your ggm naturalized with him (pre-Cable Act law). Since she never naturalized on her own behalf, her son (your gf) obtained citizenship through her. (The scenario I just describe...

Re: Pre-1912 Lack of Naturalization Case

According to Italy, the German woman became an Italian citizen when she married your gggf. Your ggf’s birth before 1912 did not affect his Italian citizenship. Since your ggf was born in the US, his mother’s naturalization had no effect on him. The only thing that would have cost your ggf his Italia...

Re: Citizenship question

Just having great grandparents who were Italian isn’t enough. You need to trace actual citizenship from generation to generation down to you. So, start with great grandparents. Where were they born? Did they naturalize? If so, when? Next generation (grandparents). Where were they born? When were the...
