Thanks for your reply Em. I don’t mind waiting the year; however, it’s the uncertainty that’s killing me. At least with the FOIA office they send you a letter acknowledging that they received your request. With the Record Services Branch, no letter, and there is no way of contacting them other than ...

Jessica, I sent my request to the FOIA office in Washington DC. From start to finish it took them about eight months to process my request. However, after receiving my package from them, I learned that the consulate requires a certified copy of the naturalization certificate. The FOIA office only pr...

US CIS Record Services Branch

I’m hoping someone can provide me with some feedback on dealing with US CIS (formerly INS). I requested a certified copy of my grandfather’s naturalization certificate from their FOIA office (located on the 2nd floor); only to be told by them that I needed to resubmit my request to the Record Servic...

Unfortunately, from what I understand, it makes no difference in the time it takes to process the application. You may want to consider requesting your appointment now, as there is approximately a one year wait. Good luck.

Best,

I believe that you can use anyone. Although, as the requirements differ from consulate to consulate, you may want to confer with the consulate you are applying through. Best of luck.

Viva Italia! Great win over Czech Republic. Too bad for the US team. I thought they would do better this year. So it looks as though it will be Italia v. Australia on Monday the 26th.

Well in theory, providing that you have all your documents in order, the appointment is for the consulate to review, accept, and process your application. The major problem seems to be that the consulates are understaffed in comparison with the number applications they are receiving. Good luck with ...

The big game, for us anyway, is Saturday. I’m not sure if the US has a chance against Italy, but we shall see.

Unfortunately the San Francisco consulate does require documents in English to be translated into Italian, with the exceptions of the naturalization certificate and apostilles.

Bravo, another world cup fan! For the most part, Europe and Latin America are at a stand still. Sadly, in the United States people could care less. For the best play-by-play action, try watching the matches on Spanish language stations.

Best regards,

I explained the situation to the clerk’s office and they prepared a letter for me explaining that the parental information was not included on either marriage certificates or applications until 1968. I did request that they certify the letter; however, they replied that they were unable to do so. Bu...

Cook County, Illinois Marriage Certificate

I’m experiencing some difficulty with my parents’ marriage certificate from Cook County, Illinois. The problem is that the county clerk’s office did not include parental information on marriage certificates (or the application) prior to 1968, and my parents were married in the 1940s. Has anyone else...
