I agree with Em on the result of naturalization. I do not agree that you will have to live in Italy for three years though to reclaim your citizenship. Since you were born with Italian citizenship (passed down by your father to you*) and subsequently lost it, you can regain it by residing legally f...

He's got both a social security number and an entry in the SSDI. The probate documents contained his date of death (April 8th 1960). That's as much as I've got. That's disappointing with the NARA document at the consulate. I'll have to track down additional documentation on that as well. Let me know...

In any event, send a list of the discrepancies to your consular citizenship officer and ask, but be prepared to amend documents. Where are you again? I am also outside of Boston, but it's more like a "bit" than "just". My great grandmother was born in the US would i still need t...

Document inconsistency questions

So having tracked down most documents to my great-grandfather. I am unable to find any official death record (I've checked surrounding states too). I just have a court case about his beneficiaries trying to claim his estate (which mentions he's dead, but that's hardly helpful) Also, the name of his ...

Re: No Death Certificate (great-grandfather)

As for whether the Consulate will let you get by w/o the DC--I'm sorry but I don't know. All the best, Peg Yes from one point of view it should not matter if everything else was in place. I'll have to hassle some local hospitals for where their records were kept. family lore is that there were 'mys...

No Death Certificate (great-grandfather)

So, he has a social security number and social security knows he's dead. Yet, no one I've contacted yet can locate a death certificate. Anyone know the process at this point? I'd like to think my 109 year old great grand father is not hiding from THE MAN alive somewhere, but I'm not sure I can prove...

This is both discouraging and educational at the same time.

BTW, are you sure GGF came to the US at age 2--or is that now in question because the other record is not your GGGF? Good luck! Peggy M That is now in question. Living relatives are fairly certain he was born in Italy but I imagine I'd have to contact the commune to get any documentation on that. s...

Now I'm getting a bit confused. The record I originally thought was my great-great-grandfather turned out to be a different individual. So now I am left with only an index card for records of petition to naturalize for my great-grandfather that was dated after my grandfathers birth. I thought I had ...

Peggy is right on all counts. Until you have all the documents and dates, there is no way to determine how to proceed. Your grandfather would only have lost Italian citizenship if his father naturalized before he was born. That is why the dates and documents are so important. I thought I read somew...

Well, guess I should start packing then! What originally started my inquiry was that I was under the impression that even without a statement of a minor naturalization my great great grandfathers naturalization would automatically remove my great grandfather Italian citizenship. Assuming 1 of 2 thin...

I'm suspecting this might be the case. My search is still in progress though.

Thanks for the great info.
