what about if your ancestors were divorced? Do you need to provide copies of their divorce records? My parents were divorced a few years after I was born. I'm thinking that the divorce shouldn't matter since they were married when I was born, but who knows.

what a stupid discrepancy...

Just got my grandparents' marriage license, and well...my grandfather's first name is Bernard, but on the license, they left out the first R. So it reads "Benard" :? Is this going to be a problem? I have a photocopy of the document that was filled out by the priest who married them, and th...

The State of NY Health Department sent my mothers Birth certificate as a transcript as well. I had to call the vital records of the state to specifically explain the document is needed for Italian citizenship purposes. They instructed me mail the document back with a letter requesting the "Lon...

Updating, just in case someone on here in the future might find themselves in the same situation: yes, the court order was sufficient for the Department of Vital Records. They didn't even make a photocopy of it, just looked at it and gave me the certificates. And...marriage licenses in Maryland are ...

^^that's what I'm wondering about. Since it's not like a normal birth certificate with the seal and whatnot, how can I tell if it's certified? My mother's document doesn't even look like any sort of legal record; it's basically just a list of the information, like someone typed it up in Word and put...

recieved a strange-looking birth record

When I went to request copies of my parents' and grandparents' birth certificates...for my grandparents, both of theirs were the usual photocopy of the original birth certificate, with the imprinted seal and sticker for certification. But for my mother, they gave me instead a piece of paper with the...

^^ I know...I posted this on the slim chance that someone else here might have been in my situation and could tell me whether or not they were able to get what they needed.

Thanks for the well-wishing; I suppose I'll find out tomorrow morning when I go.

question re: permission letters and name change

Greetings, I seem to have gotten myself into an unfortunate predicament. :( In Maryland, to obtain my parents' and grandparents' birth certificates and marriage licenses, I needed to get notarized letters of permission signed by each individual. So I did. The problem is this: I recently changed my f...

do I need copies of my parents' divorce certification?

My parents divorced a few years after I was born. Do I need documentation of this? Or does it not matter for my purpose of claiming Italian citizenship? Is the marriage certificate (showing that they were married when i was born) enough?

Thanks in advance for clarifying :)
