Hi JLG-- I had a similar experience to yours with Fed Court in Chicago--except that I had it over the phone! So I gave up and asked USCIS for my GF's naturalization records--which arrived 5 months or so later. They weren't certified however--even though I had asked them to be. I don't know if this w...

Hi JLG! Your story makes me think you are asking the wrong person--since I had a similar experience with Chi. Fed. Court--who claimed that all nat. stuff had been sent to NARA and they had nothing in house. I have a 2 questions-- (1)are you saying that you have NARA docs but also need a copy of natu...

Re: not sure about 1861

My knowledge of Italian history is a little hazy, but do know that in 1840 there was no Italy. Was GGGF an Italian in 1870, when he left? All the best, Peg

Hi Skaman, If I understand you correctly, you haven't yet had your citizenship appointment--rather the Consulate is doing a pre-appt review. If you search the board you will find some sample affidavits posted relatively recently. However, you need to be sure that the affidavit you write meets the Co...

First congratulations & best wishes! Regarding name changes: Your fiancee is not required to change her surname upon marriage. Given the very strict Italian laws about name changes, why not wait until after you and she are a citizens to hyphenate your surnames. BTW, you & she can call yourse...

Re: Court Order

this involves serving two city agencies and getting an Index number. As part of getting my court order, I had to serve some papers on my ex-husband. But it was easy. Get a blank affidavit of service, fill it in, (except for signature) prepare the document to be served and place in an envelope--then...

Hi Pat, I used the Westchester County office of the self-represented (pro se) to get a court order for my certificate of no appeal--not for a name change issue. Here's a link to the Office of the Self-Represented. Though they provide services for the poor, you do not have to be poor to use their ser...

Another idea: Is Casalbore a large town? If so, GGF might be from a smaller comune nearby. My GF always put Florence as his birth place, but in fact, he was born in a nearby place, Sesto Fiorentino. I'm not exactly sure why he did that--perhaps he knew that people recognized Florence but not Sesto F...

Hi! I have some suggestions: 1. Have you checked GGM's birth record? It might have a notation of her marriage, along with date & place of GGF's birth. 2. Post your question here in the Genealogy section. http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Forums.html 3. Professional Italian genealogists also pos...

Hi Italy_au, If you are registering your own divorce at Philly Consulate, the certified judgment & letter of no appeal have to be apostilled, translated, and the translation has to be notarized by the translator as accurate and the translation has to be apostilled. I don't know if the same will ...

Dear Italy_au, Is your father still living? I ask because he can probably explain the US divorce process to you since he went through it. I am divorced but in NY--which may be different from PA. But I'll try to answer--and if I'm wrong, well, I did my best. 1. The divorce decree (also called a judgm...

To register one's own (foreign) divorce in Italy one needs a certificate of no appeal (or alternative documentation that the divorce is final). See the Philly Consular services page under vital records. Page down to the section on divorce for a full explanation, But I really don't know what Philly w...
