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

Re: I Just Beat the 1948 Rule

I don't think we should assume that because someone is using the word "beat" in regard to the 1948 rule, that they are pulling something over the eyes of Italian officials. I think the original poster is just meaning that they feel the 1948 rule is unfair. I also don't believe that's ones ...

Re: NYC Delayed Birth Registrataion

Karen,
Last year you posted that NYS has a law on the books that does not allow for a Delayed Birth Certificate for a deceased individual. What changed in the past year that you feel the Dept. of Health will issue such a certificate?

Re: Declaration of Intention

Since your father was born in 1922 and your gf did not start the citizenship process until 1942, you are eligible for dual citizenship.

Even if your father was born May 24, 1945, you would still be eligible.

Re: Using a baptism record in place of a birth record

Im not sure if the Houston Consulate will accept the baptism certificate but if you have to go the route of a Delayed Birth Certificate, you would have to get the court in the state that your grandfather was born to issue the document, not the state where you live now. The other alternative which yo...

Re: Original Naturalization Certificate Not Good Enough for

I've have read quite a few posts where successful applicants have advised DO NOT VOLUNTEER INFORMATION...not because you are hiding anything, but somehow, someway, the Consular official will take the information you provide and somehow twist it around. The Consular official is not your friend. They ...

Re: english to italian translations

I used both Gianluca Croce (glcroce@gmail.com) and Gabriella Einaga (Gabriella_Einaga@att.net). Both were reasonably priced and did a very good job. You will need to tell them about your time frame as they seem to be very busy. Also, give enough time for them to return the documents to you so that y...

Re: What Next Please?

Is it possible that your GF was born and lived in a different state before 1910? Also, have you tried different spelling variations of your family’s name when looking for the 1900 census? Have you found your GGF’s ship manifest? Many times, it will list the comune that your family came from. A good ...

Re: NYC Appt Recap -- Long Post

You write about the clerk at the NYC consulate looking over your census records...did you offer the records or did they ask for them? I wasn't aware that one had to bring census documents to the meeting. I was in the same situation where my GF was never issued a birth certificate so I had to petitio...

Re: Process for Italian Citizenship

Depending on the Consulate you would be going through it may be a good idea to have all your documents prior to making your appointment. I am going through the NYC Consulate and when I made my appt. I had about 85 percent of my documents and have been spending the year up to the appt dealing with co...
