Peggy, Thanks for the thoughts-- as I'm going over the Documents I finally got my hands on- including birth certificate, baptismal record- both from Varese Ligure and 2 docs from the San Francisco Italian consulate regarding his military obligation. What I have is basically 2 documents stating that ...

Em, so what do you think my next step should be? Obtain a copy of the mother's birth certificate from Carson City? Would I then need to go to the US Consulate or other agency and get his US citizenship cleared up or take all the documentation to the Italian Consulate? I'm clearly a novice here. I'm ...

Certificate of citizenship

I'm not 100 % sure what it actually means. But in this case my father in law born in Italy to a US Citizen was granted US citizenship when he was 14. I'm hoping, for the purpose of gaining Italian Citizenship that this is not the Naturalization process everyone is talking about. Chances are it is. Y...

The only document we have at this point is his baptismal record from his hometown outside of Genoa. I guess the birth certificate was lost in a fire at the church where records were kept. I don't think he has his expired Italian passport, which would present a problem for just going and applying for...

What do you all think my best options are? Have my father in law go to the Consulate and see if he can renew his passport? If he's successful at that then I can get started with the paperwork for the rest of the family. Any advice on my next step?

Thank you all for you posts. I'm now trying to dig up some more info on the situation. My father in law is going to try and contact the consulate in S.F. to see what his status is. I guess his mother was born in the US and moved back to Italy at a young age. No one in the family remembers much about...

No, he didn't serve. So it doesn't look good for us. Do you think it's worth the effort to see if the consulate still recognizes him as a citizen?
Thank you for your speedy reply,
Best,
Chris
