siblings

Hi - I had my appointment in SF a little over a year ago - went without a hitch, so I suspect I still have about another year to wait. But my question is with regards to my siblings, after I am recognized as an Italian citizen. My 2 brothers are in the jurisdiction of the Boston consulate and my sis...

Sorry for cross posting - I cut this message that I wrote in another thread: When I first started this process around April 2006, the document (form 2/A) distributed from the SF consulate clearly was to be signed (and required either notarization or signature in front of consular official) by the li...

Just looking at the web, it appears the address for this office would be: URP - Informagiovani Comune di Carlentini Via Roma 191 Carlentini (SR) You might send him/her something with their name at that address. Be careful though - who knows who might get the package. You might send it by FedEx (or s...

By the way - I just finished my appointment a couple of weeks ago, and it was only my signatures that were required. I had all the documents with me unsigned, so I could sign them myself in front of the consular official. It didn't seem to really matter, but I did it that way just to be safe. :D

When I first started this process around April 2006, the document (form 2/A) distributed from the SF consulate clearly was to be signed (and required either notarization or signature in front of consular official) by the living ascendant born in the USA him/herself. On form 2/B (the one where you si...

How's this for a discrepancy? (not an error really, but definitely a discrepancy!). My grandmother's name was Pasqualina. Her nickname (and that used on many official documents!) was Esther. This is the anglicized version of Pasqualina - Easter -- Pascal, you know... In any case, this was not a prob...

My best tip, based upon my inquiring at the San Francisco consulate when I had my appointment a couple of weeks ago, is to figure out which consulate has the best turn around time. Then have that sibling go through the process. Once their citizenship is recognized, it is very easy to have the other ...

It is confirmed that Anna-Maria Stone is back in the citizenship office :). I just had my appointment a couple of weeks ago - totally successful :D! She was on leave for some months. During that time, they still took appointments and took paperwork for people's citizenship, but it has sat there unto...

I had my appointment a couple of weeks ago, and it went completely smoothly :). I had made the appointment back in February - this was the first one they had available at the time. Anna-Maria Stone IS back in the citizenship office, after some months of leave. She rolled her eyes when I asked her ab...

In reply to marciatrouton and cynnanmarie, I want to completely agree with the kudos for Gabriella as a translator. Very fast, very communicative, very friendly. Really a pleasure to work with. And did I mention she is fast? And her rates are outstanding - the best I've seen when looking into it. :D

When I sent my list of discrepancies over to Anna Marie Stone at the SF consulate, she had no problems at all with any of them. They included lots of misspellings (even on the Italian birth certificate! Z instead of S for first letter of last name - although this was not the ancestor that citizenshi...

Also note - the names you listed were all simply Anglicized versions of the Italian names. Those are very commonplace in this whole process, and I have never heard of a consulate having a problem with them.

Thank you very much for your help cynannmarie! I am so glad to have information from someone who just went through this at the same consulate where I will be presenting my paperwork in June. I will be contacting the translator you suggested as soon as I just go through this one more time, because I ...

Hello, I am also putting my paperwork in through the SF consulate. So far they have been very helpful via emails, but for some reason I have gotten no reply on this after emailing 3 times since November. I have all of my paperwork with Apostilles (went rather smoothly after all the difficulties peop...
