Which state? I had the same issue with my grandfather's marriage and death certificate in NY, although the discrepancy was about 45 days from his Italian certificate. NY state told me I could change the birthdate on the death certificate within 90 days with no problems (after showing the Italian bir...

That's great news - congratulations! I had my documents accepted in early June, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. How many generations back did you go? (I wonder whether it makes any difference?)

Had my appointment in June of 2006. No other appointments necessary, since they told me all of my documents were in order. I began collecting documents in November of 2005. No reply yet from consulate, although I may call the Anagrafe after the first of the year just in case they've heard something.

But what if the relative is deceased, as in all of my grandparent's cases? I had the same situation - if you can get a hold of the death certificates for your relatives, a copy of that should suffice. Remember to request an exemplified long form from NYC! Extra note - in order to get the death cert...

I was there at the end of August. If you bring in translations of documents, they will simply hand them back to you. They do their own. Enjoy your visit. I met one of the new people, and she was lovely. She was being trained at the time. Mr. Azzarra, the man who has been doing this for several year...

Someone sent me a private message, which I mistakenly deleted, so I'll reply here. Regarding the NYC consulate, I would recommend you plan on giving the consulate the original (plus apostilles, etc.) plus one copy of each document. They didn't ask for copies of the apostilles. But make sure you make...

Re: First Name Discrepancy

My Grandfather's first name is Francesco, but on his marriage certificate it is spelled Francisco. Everywhere else it is spelled correctly, or the American equivalent of Frank is used. Does anybody know if this going to be a problem for me? Thanks for the help. Chris It depends on the consulate I g...

You are lucky. I can't even get them to answer the phone or reply to an email! I couldn't get them on the phone or through e-mail either - I just made an appointment with the appointment service number listed on their homepage, and went in prepared and hoped for the best. Now let's see how it goes ...

Re: Which consulate to go through

It seems that New York requires so much less than Miami does and I'm assuming the time for processing is about the same in both of these consulates. Does anyone have any details on the Miami consulate? I wrote them by email but I haven't heard anything back from them. Thanks for any suggestions and...

My NYC Appointment Last Week

This board has been very helpful, so I thought I would give back by relating my experience at the NYC consulate last week. Your mileage may vary, but I had a good experience. Some notes: - I’m officially a resident of Boston, but my parents and sister (who were there with me) are residents of NYC, a...

Re: Document Expiration Date?

Does anyone know if documents like birth and marriage certificates issued in both Italy and the U.S./Canada have an expiration date , meaning a point in time when the consulate will no longer accept them? I don't know about the consulate, but the state may not issue an apostille if the issue date o...

6 months is a long time. I would make another effort to locate the record, by sending another request. The comunes have been busy with the elections, and may have lost the original request. I would also consider contacting the mayor (Sindaco) of the comune, asking them to follow up on your request....

Do I need a marriage certificate in this case in NYC?

Here's my situation. I'm claiming through my grandfather, to my father, to me. I have EVERY document I need, including apostilles, certifications, etc., with all discrepancies corrected, EXCEPT for my grandparents' Italian marriage certificate. However, on their birth certificates from Italy, the Co...

What was the waiting time for your appointment? Did you make one in advance, or were you a "walk-in"?

Thanks in advance!

Re: To CJR

I have two questions; did you send all your letters as certified and second why did you send two letters to the records bureau? Thanks in advance. I neither sent them as certified mail, nor did I have them notarized - just plain old regular US mail. I didn't send two letters to the records bureau -...
