Re: I Just Beat the 1948 Rule

jennabet, I don't think I'm the one being naive about Italy if you really think the 1948 rule is in place because of people like me who, "have very little, if any connection to Italy or it's culture or traditions." This forum is filled with people going back as far as I did to claim citizenship, som...

Re: New Italian Law March 2009

Same here. I just posted a detailed story of my experience with Luigi and winning my citizenship this week: http://www.italiangenealogy.com/forum/topic25757.html

I Just Beat the 1948 Rule

Well, really my attorney Luigi Paiano did. For the benefit of those that are in the position I was in, I will detail the entire process... This whole thing started about 18 months ago when I first discovered that I was ineligible for Italian citizenship for two reasons. First, my GGM married a US ci...

Re: Help with birth extract translation

Thank you so much!

So regarding the last written notation... would that mean he was the last recorded birth for 1846?

Re: Looking for birth year of Francesco Longobardi in Posita

Shoot, yes, all dates are meant to be 18xx
Birth would be between 1842 to 1847

I did obtain his nat. record, and it does not have his birth year on it.

Looking for birth year of Francesco Longobardi in Positano

Hello all, I have several conflicting Ellis island records giving age and date combinations that would lead to birth years of anywhere from 1942 to 1948. I emailed the Comune di Positano with the 1948 birth year (which I thought was right) and they have no record. They responded to me in about a wee...

Re: Court order to get 1893 naturalization record from count

So I ended up getting this record after all. I had to argue with the head clerk for Jackson county. After I showed her this page: http://www.michigan.gov/ag/0,1607,7-164-17337_18160-51242--,00.html on my laptop, she was finally convinced she had to legally give me the document. Because of me, she sa...

Court order to get 1893 naturalization record from county?

Has anyone ever heard of having to get a court order for a copy of a naturalization record? My local county clerk office does have a record of my ancestor's naturalization. They could tell me everything over the phone, including the date he naturalized, but they said I would need to get a court orde...

Re: Citizenship through GF born from GGM before 1948

I agree, it is a bit confusing. I THINK that yes, she would have been an Italian citizen because she was born from a male, but yes, she would have lost her citizenship by marrying an American. I have a phone call planned with a lawyer in Napoli tomorrow or the day after. Perhaps he will charge less....

Re: Citizenship through GF born from GGM before 1948

Thanks for all of the input. I think I understand our situation more clearly now. I emailed Luigi Paiano regarding this, and finally just heard back from him. He believes I stand about a 90% chance of winning if I were to take this to court. He pointed out that in his most recent case he won this pa...

Re: Citizenship through GF born from GGM before 1948

I do understand that this is two separate issues, however, why do you say that it is more likely to make her citizenship retroactive to her marriage in 1907 and less likely to make her right to transfer citizenship retroactive to my GF in 1921? If anything, I would have thought it would be the other...

Citizenship through GF born from GGM before 1948

I am seeking some clarity and recommendations regarding my situation. Here is my Lineage: Me -> Father -> Grand Father (Born 1921) -> Great Grand Mother (Italian born, never naturalized, married American in US 1907) From my understanding, she not only lost her Italian citizenship by marrying a forei...
