Re: Pre-1912 Lack of Naturalization Case

You are qualified, but apparently finding the documentation has been difficult. Since you are applying through an check with him. The documents the courts will accept are sometimes different from those required by the consulate, and he will be able to provide the guidance you

Best of luck.

Re: JS Lawyer in San Francisco

Why do you need a lawyer? If yours is a 1948 case, you need an Italian lawyer. If yours is a consulate case, you go to the consulate on your own with your documents.

Re: Is this a possibility for a 1948 JS case?

Discrepancies are common and can be overcome. Do as much background work as you can, and then contact several attorneys for input.

Re: Is this a possibility for a 1948 JS case?

Not all soldiers who served in the American military became US citizens, but most did. It seems your ggf was among them, causing the loss of his Italian citizenship. You will definitely need to use your ggm’s line. BTW, had your ggf not received citizenship, it would not have necessarily been a 1948...

Re: Eligible for JUS SANGUINIS?

I think you are mistaking the 1912 law. If they both naturalized before he was born, citizenship ended at that point. Are you absolutely certain your gm naturalized, because if her husband naturalized in 1920, there was no need for her to do so?

Your answer to this question makes a big difference.

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...

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...
