Re: Any way to qualify?

That wouldn't work because your great grandmother could not pass citizenship before 1948. Is there a possibility that you might qualify through your father's line? Or, would your mom's mother work?

Re: Born before 1948

Hi Adrian. Please read my more extensive explanation in the PM I sent you. I did want to clarify this statement: "Those who were born before 1948 may obtain Italian citizenship only through paternal direct ascendants." So this is rather ambiguous, my father was born in 1946, but it's his m...

Re: NYC Consulate Meeting

You will be able to apply together if you are both applying at the same consulate and make an appointment for two. But please read my response to your other query. You can only apply if you can qualify through your father's father. Because of your dad's birthdate, you are ineligible through your gra...

Re: Born before 1948

You will be tracing citizenship through ggf, gm, father, you, and it's at your father's birth certificate that you run into trouble. Even though your aunt qualified, your father does not--at least not through this line. Your grandmother was able to pass on her citizenship only after 1948; your fathe...

Re: Washington, DC Embassy help needed

It really only applies to citizenship through marriage, and the applicant pays the fee, not the consulate.

Re: Passport

Post your question in www.expatsinitaly.com Most of the posters there live in Italy and are more familiar with the local procedures.

Re: Discrepancies on Petition and Declaration

NY, as you know, is particularly fussy about discrepancies, and zap is correct that naturalization documents cannot be corrected. There is one very important factor that works in your favor and that is your ancestor's signature, which is the name that HE wrote. This, in combination with an affidavit...

Re: 1912 Rule for a US Citizen

This seems to depend on the consulate. At this time, SF and NY enforce the "1912 rule." I understand Philly does not, but I don't know about the others.

Re: DO I QUALIFY?

Were your parents married before your father's 1976 naturalization? If so, your mother automatically obtained Italian citizenship, and you could qualify through her. Since your father was naturalized before you were born, you cannot qualify through him. You can obtain Italian citizenship by residing...

Re: Father has dual citizenship

Unfortunately, the dates don't work for you. Since your parents were naturalized when you were born, they could not pass citizenship to you. When your father reacquired his citizenship in the 1990's, you were an adult and thus could not obtain Italian citizenship with him. You cannot skip generation...

Re: Italian Translation

This is the thread: http://italiangenealogy.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=20896.html

Apparently, it is not a translation but a certification.

Re: Italian Translation

This is a new requirement, but I recall someone posting about this on either www.italiangenealogy.com or www.italiancitizenship.freeforums.org If I recall correctly, someone applied in NY and all was good except that one document needed to be sent to LA for the translation you mention. I believe the...

Re: No evidence of Naturalization - will this suffice?

It looks good, but even though census records are notoriously unreliable, consulates now seem to be asking for them to support a "no records" claim. If you can find a 1900 and/or 1910 census that identifies him as AL this will be helpful. NARA will certify such records.

Re: Citizenship via Great Great Grandfather

elehoner, it's important, too, to determine exactly when your ggf naturalized. In more and more consulates, any naturalization before 1912 disqualifies all children no matter when they were born.
