San Francisco consulate and the 1912 law - the DEFINITE ANSWER!

Hello I emailed the San Francisco consulate regarding the 1912 law and whether or not they enforce it and if so, which date do they use, June 14 or July 1. I received an email back from Signora Pagani answering my questions. The San Francisco consulate does enforce the 1912 law and they use the June...

Re: Which Consulates overlook the 1912 rule?

The SF consulate doesn't even list the 1912 rule as a disqualifier on their website anymore when they have in the past. So I'm thinking SF may not care about it like they have. That's just a guess though. I'll find out in January when I have my appointment there because my gg grandpa naturalized on ...

Re: help with birth certificate

Thank you so much for telling me what that meant. I'm going to write back and ask for a copia integrale. I'm grateful I got an estratto but that would have been better. Thanks!

help with birth certificate

Hello all, So, I received a copy of my ancestor's birth certificate from il comune di Faeto. I just need some clarification. I've attached a scan PDF file of the birth certificate. First question- I've only known my ancestor by his name of Antonio Pavia. Here, his first given name is Fedele and his ...

Re: How far back can line go for Italian citizenship?

Well, I FINALLY got the results back from USCIS. They found my great great grandpa's naturalization info and he naturalized on June 15, 1912, TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE CUTOFF FOR THE 1912 LAW! So, from what I understand, short of hiring an attorney and paying a lot of euros or moving to Italy to establis...

How do Italians perceive non-"Italians" getting citizenship?

By Italians, I mean people born in Italy who have Italian citizenship, ethnicity, heritage,nationality etc. And by non-Italians, I mean people whose nationality wasn't originally Italian. How do Italians look at people who are doing, or have done, what we're doing in trying to claim Italian citizens...

Re: Anybody else mixed with another ethnicity?

From my dad, I'm 1/4 Italian and 1/4 English. From my mom, I'm 1/2 Tongan. She's from the Tongan Islands in the Pacific. My paternal grandpa committed the sin of marrying a non-Italian. He's full Italian though born in the US. He was actually "disowned" by his parents because he married ou...

Sources for learning how to read and write Italian

Hello I'm helping my grandma do genealogy. With the Italian side, the language, unfortunately, didn't survive, so I'd like to learn to at least read and write Italian to help with those records. What sources are out there to help with that? Does anyone have any good suggestions on learning technique...

Re: How far back can line go for Italian citizenship?

Quick update and question- I just heard back from the National Archives. They were unable to match my ancestor with any naturalization record in the NA, and I was advised to contact the county clerk of the county in which he lived, which would be Onondaga county, New York in this case, and also USCI...

Re: How far back can line go for Italian citizenship?

Thanks for the luck. I've been shooting of emails to the National Archives. They'll locate the records for me and then I have to pay some small fees to obtain copies. They saw that within 10 days, I should have what I'm looking for. We'll see what happens!

Re: How far back can line go for Italian citizenship?

So far, what I have so far about my gg grandpa is that he came to the US in 1903 and my great grandpa was born in 1908. In the US 1910 census in Syracuse, NY, gg grandpa is listed as a VERY CLEAR "PA" in the citizenship status column. The rest of my ancestors are all listed as "AL&quo...

Hello all I'm new here and found this forum while searching for help doing Italian genealogical research, and the concept that I could possibly get Italian citizenship is really fascinating. I honestly never had heard about that before nor did it ever cross my mind. Anyways, I've been looking at var...
