Re: I'm adopted ... does that make a difference?

I want to apply through my father (born in the US) and grandfather (born in Italy). Everything looks pretty clear that I qualify .... but I am adopted. I was adopted at birth. I have a birth certificate showing my adoptive parents as my "parents". But it makes me nervous applying as an ad...

Re: so confused - Do I qualify?

Strongly second what zagnut. Most of us come onto this board sparingly, while we are regular over there. I'll answer your question here, but not sure if I'll be back to respond to any questions you have as I don't check this board that often. If your Mom married your Dad after 1922, then she did not...

Re: when i become a citizen

You should just register their births are the consulate you are registered at. This documentation automatically registers them as Italian citizens. They do not need to apply.

I am pregnant right now and am sure of this :)

Re: Another Newbie Question Re: Qualifying

First, your grandmothers aren't able to pass citizenship along to their children if they were born before 1948, so you don't need to worry about them (if that's the case). I would like to clarify that the bolded "they" refers to the children not the mother . So if your parents where born ...

Re: Clarification on Qualifying (last step in my research!)

I'm sorry, you are not eligible since your GGF was naturalized before the birth of your GM and your GM was born before 1948, before her mother could pass citizenship to her. Your lawyer friend is only partially right - what he quotes is true today , but it was not true when your GGF naturalized and ...

Re: Space Issue

In Italian, "of" is Di and while not common, is common enough in names. De would be of either French, Portuguese or Spanish origin.

Re: Cencus records

Actually you do need them but only for certain consulates, like San Francisco, to prove non-naturalization. What consulate are you using?

Re: Space Issue

I have heard of problems with names similar to this (De Anza vs Deanza), but it looks like the D and G are always capitalized on yours, so it might not be so much of a problem. However, only the consulate can rule there.

Re: An unusual case

Yes, I would write to them stating that your father is a citizen and that you wish to apply for citizenship through the comune and how you would go about doing that.

Re: a little help needed..

If GF was born in the US before either GGF or GGM naturalized, it does not matter if either naturalized.

So yes if the case is as you describe, it looks like you qualify.

Re: Qualification

It could be - depends on the comune. It also depends on the consulate here, but if you are going to be legally living in Italy, you have to apply in Italy anyway. You must apply where you reside.

Re: Original Certificates Required?

Nope, unfortunately. You will probably only be able to get back the Italian certificates and the naturalization documents.
