Re: DNA Test Results & Question For Others

I also submitted my Ancestry.com DNA information to DNA.Land, and I think Ancestry.com seems to be a bit more believable. Under Ancestry.com, I went from Italian/Slavic (which makes sense) to Balkans/Iberian under DNA.Land. I think Ancestry.com has a wider group of submissions so they can more accur...

Re: Just starting and a little overwhelmed...help??

As long as your great grandfather did not become a citizen before your grandfather was born, you would be eligible for dual citizenship. However, you would have to prove your g-gf did not become a citizen or became a citizen after your gf was born (which actually, in my opinion, is better because yo...

Re: advice about NYC consulate

I'm surprised that you have not heard from the Consulate notifying you officially that your application has been accepted. While NYC does make you jump through hoops in the application process, once you pass the final meeting, they are usually pretty fast (at least in the last two years) of notifyin...

Re: NYC Delayed Birth Registrataion

It also seems to depend on which clerk you have at the Italian Consulate. I had a Declaratory Judgment and was waiting for a Delayed Birth Certificate to be issued by the time I had my first appt., but the Consulate would not recognize my citizenship until I got the delayed Birth Certificate, which ...

Re: Dual citizenship possible?

I'm confused why you say your grandmother was born in the US, but was not a US citizen? Under American law, anyone born on US soil is a entitled to American citizenship, regardless of the citizenship of the parents. If your great grandparents lived in New York State, you would contact the County Cle...

Re: Birth Certificate from NY -Request for Judicial Interven

You do not need an attorney to start a court case in New York State. You can file paperwork as a per se. It takes some work, but if you have some initiative, you can do this. You also do not have to appear in court. When your documents are filed, it will be assigned to a Supreme court Justice who wi...

Re: Please help 1 item keeping me from Italian Citizenship!

Is it possible that the Birth Certificate date is wrong? Maybe the town clerk wrote up the certificate months after his birth and put his birth day down in January instead of November. Have you been able to find a Baptism Certificate as that may show the actual birth day and the spelling of his name.

Re: Anyone know a translator?

I used Gianluca as well (along with Gabriella Einaga). Both very good and fair priced.
My Italian is not that great, but I thought "Gianluca" was a masculine name.

Re: Finally Found GGF!

With Italian Gen web page, you have to try different spellings of the surname - think of all the different ways it could have been spelled. Although it is possible that your GGF was still alive past 1948 (the date the NYC death records are available to the public). Also, you may want to write to the...

Re: Birth certificate from Italy without parents names

My comune did the same thing and I had to request a different birth certificate. They need to send you the Estratto Per Riassunto Dai Registri Degli Atti Di Nascita
