Can anyone translate this?

Hi, I've been trying to dig up whatever info I can from my family name (D'Alacchi) on the net, but unfortunately, I can't read Italian yet, so I have to guess a lot of things. I ran across this page which supposedly has info on some noble families, one of which has my family name on there. It has a ...

Unknown.. interesting. Russell put 1901 as his immigration date, probably had no clue as to whether or not his father naturalized, I'm sure. We were only recently able to figure out the real family name from my GGGF's passport, which a relative still had. We used that to check the Ellis Island recor...

Would you have to renounce US citizenship if you spend 3 years in Italy and acquire citizenship that way?

Awesome, here is what I know According to a copy of a ship log from NYC, My GGGF Alessandro D'Alacchi stepped off the boat in NYC on OCT 10, 1898 with his wife and son Rosolino D'Alacchi who was then 10 months old. He later made his way to New Orleans and then settled in the Tangipahoa parish Louisi...

OK. I've just been looking through that thread you posted for the last few hours.. and CRAP am I confused. I think I know what information I need to determine if I am still eligible... Since my GF was the first in my direct lineage to be born in the US in 1924, I need to determine if my GGF was ever...

That is just it..

I do not know if he was ever naturalized.

What if that is the case, that there are no naturalization records?

What then, and how can I find that out for sure?

I've searched a few sites and so far get no results for their names.

%#$%@#$@ Ok.. So at this point the ONLY option left to be eligible is to explore the possibility that my great great grandparents never naturalized, correct? What is the likelihood of that being the case around 1900? My dad has birth certificates and records from Ellis Island, but no naturalization ...

Also, my grandfather served in the US Navy during WWII.

Does military service usually pose a problem? As in, would they have required him to renounce any claim to Italian citizenship upon entering the service?

I know my great great grandparents came to the US in 1898, my great grandfather was born in Sicily and was a baby when they immigrated. That baby grew up and had my grandfather in ~1925, who had my father i...
