Documents for brothers

I successfully received my citizenship last Feb through the Philadelphia consulate. At the time, my brothers did not apply. My mother was recognized, I have been in touch with my commune in Italy as I now live here. My question: if my brothers decide to apply, they would just need my mother's birth ...

What consulate did you submit your documents to? Each consulate proceeds differently. Philadelphia sends two letters, one saying the documents have been officially accepted and a second when all is registered in Italy. From what I've read here, NY only sends one letter when everything is finished an...

Hi, I got the naturalization records through the Chester County Archives--they are extremely helpful people and respond to emails and phone calls. As for the missing birth certificate, I think it will depend on the mood of the guy the day you file. Since it's your great-grandfather's Italian certifi...

For my application I did not have an actual certificate of naturalization. I had to go through the local courthouse to get the papers and they sent me the declaration of intention, application, and the signed oath of allegiance. All of these were certified and stapled together. These were acceptable...

Good news to report: today I received an official letter from the Philadelphia Consulate stating that my "request for acknowledgement of Italian citizenship 'jure sanguinis' had been accepted" and that as soon as: "the documentation you have submitted is registered at the Italian Muni...

mfk, how much time elapsed between when the Philly consulate took your documents and when you received a letter in the mail saying they were accepted and sent? When I left the documents with them, they didn't ask me to make any changes ( the first 2 times the did , but in those cases they wouldn't t...

No, no, I know that there is NO WAY my citizenship will be recognized before I leave. I'm going to Italy for other reasons and have a visa on my American passport. I'm only worried because I don't have anything from the consulate saying they accepted the documents and I want to make sure there isn't...

Philadelphia Consulate

Okay, I went to the Philadelphia Consultate and presented my documents a month ago. They accepted them and told me that I would receive two letters: one from them to say they had sent the documents to Italy to be registered and then another officially recognizing my citizenship after the documents w...

You're talking about obtaining a No Record for your grandfather born in the US correct? I'm in PA and in my case I downloaded the birth certificate request form, filled it out with all the information I had and in response received the NO RECORD certificate because, in fact, there was no record of h...

I began this process in June of 2004 and then ran into problems when I could not obtain a state birth record for my great-grandfather who was born in the US in 1906 but apparently was never registere...

I tried to apply in Florence, Italy and there was told that they would not accept applications if the line went back further than 2 generations and that it was in fact AGAINST THE LAW to apply through great-grandparents. I did not find the Italian communes to be at all informed of the jure sanguis l...

I had this same problem for my great-grandfather. I applied through the Philadelphia Consulate. They accepted a "No Record" certificate from the Vital Statistics office as proof of birth. I also had his baptismal record certified and then apostilled just in case.

Applying in Florence FYI

I want to share info about applying in Florence because from things I've read here (I love the site!) it DOES seem to imply that it is a simple process. HOWEVER, in Florence it IS NOT. I was told today that there is a limit on the number of generations you can claim back through and they would not a...

I had a similar issue with PA vital statistics: My great-grandfather's name was spelled 'Gendi' (the way it was pronounced with the regional accent) instead of 'Gentile' They sent me a letter stating that it was his birth record but the Philadelphia consulate would not accept it. I tried to get a co...
