Re: Had my Philly appt today!

Im pretty much done. I sent an email to the consulate. She told me if I have any questions to contact her. So I did. I asked about the census I need to give. It says he naturalized but I have 6 records saying he didnt. They said everything needs to match or be corrected. They know damn well a census...

Re: Had my Philly appt today!

Of course, you will do what you think is best, but I sure hate it when someone who is clearly qualified is forced to jump through hoops. Hang in there. :) This is what is making me angry. I have a solid direct line and several docs saying no naturalization. But the consulate wants to be concerned w...

Re: Need to find a death certificate in NJ

DeFilippis78: you have 1900 census? It could be helpful for to know if Carmela was listed and the birthyear also; if you have it, and Carmela was alive, in this case she died after 1900 census... instead if in 1900 she is not, maybe she died at childbirth, around same death date of the son (25 Jun ...

Re: Had my Philly appt today!

I hope the grand-mother doesn't read this forum and learn that somebody suggested having her declared mentally incompetent, which in my opinion, is far worse than waiting for her to be deceased and maybe even illegal, since President Obama signed the Elder Justice Act last year. This is totally off...

Re: Need to find a death certificate in NJ

Im not sure where they are buried. I know they died in Jersey City. The largest cemetery in JC is where my family is buried, but Carmela and the kids arent there

Re: Had my Philly appt today!

The DC is from NJ. I initially requested the genealogical copy. I never got the certified copy because I believe the document is too old to amend and I didnt want to show it to the consulate with the wrong DOB. So I figured I wouldnt purchase it unless the consulate asked for it.I was hoping they wo...

Re: Had my Philly appt today!

I think they will remember every detail! They wrote down a list of everything they wanted and put big circles around the items that are essential with big question marks! I have to double check with my mother but I believe I asked them if it would be best to apply alone.Im almost certain they said i...

Need to find a death certificate in NJ

Im wondering if anyone here has access to NJ death records from the late 1800s into early 1900s. The person Im looking for was born Carmela Melchiorre.But her married surname would be Passaro. Also, she went by a nickname of Meluzza. She died in Jersey City NJ between 1898 and 1905. Anyone have acce...

Re: Had my Philly appt today!

There is no way to establish residency anywhere else. Also, concerning my grandmother, they were not willing to waive seeing a photo ID. Thats a problem. As far as the death certificate for the first wife, Im hoping they would take a copy. Im sure I can somehow get a COPY of a death certificate (if ...

Re: Had my Philly appt today!

I think they are being VERY difficult and want me to give up. When I left they told me they dont like to keep files open for long so I should work on it right away and contact them to get an appt to bring the documents in. SS records dont apply here because the documentation is from 1898-1918. He ma...

In my personal opinion they are documents that should...
