Alla prossima

Another thing happened. My second marriage license shows my "cognome" as Figliuolo. Of course, that is the last name of my first husband which I took. So my name on the top of the license for the second marriage has this name. The consulate official who reviewed my file sent it back and sa...

Divorce Papers

All of the consulates are strict about these documents. You must get a certified copy of your divorce decree and a letter of no appeal from your county clerk. They have to be translated into Italian and must contain a "jurat" applied by the notary to be further certified in NY by the Clerk...

Biological Parents

Hi Peggy, The reason why they want this is because they are going to register this adoption as if this were 60 years ago. The whole thing is a little strange because even in Italy, the identity of natural parents is kept secret from the child, and the adoptive parents only know the last name (it is ...

Adoption

Hi, After going through 2 years of documentation, and after having been told that I should be approved, the Italians translating my documents discovered to my great surprise that I was adopted. This happened when I was 6 mos. old. My natural parents were both Italian/Italian American, but this does ...

Certificate

In NY they only accept certified copies. I had a photocopy and they told me to get a certified copy. I sent it back to the Dept. of Homeland Security, and they certified it with a raised-seal letter attached.

Good luck!

exemplification

HI Em, We got the exemplification letter at the Changes room at the NYC Dept. of Health. This is for Birth and Death changes. You need the exemplification letter to have these amended certificates accepted by NYC Consulate. Then we took them to the Cty. Clerk and then to NYS on William St. for the A...

Name change

Hi, In NYC, my husband had his birth certificate amended to reflect his legal name change. He did this so that hopefully once my citizenship is recognized, our marriage documents and his passport will conform to his birth certificate. We requested the change in person at the changes office, and we h...

Westchester

Dear Peg, Sorry you're having this trouble. Nassau County knew exactly what I was asking for and they gave it to me on the spot. One of the sites, I think it was the San Francisco Embassy site, had a sample letter to mail in to county clerks. Perhaps they are just too lazy to do the form, but Westch...

Certificate of No Appeal

Dear Peggy, When I went for my second appointment, I was told that I had to have the certificate of No Appeal. I had that and my divorce translated officially. When I went back with my husband, I asked whether I would need his divorce information and No Appeal letter. They said this would depend on ...

Death Certificates

Hi,

I was able to get all the information I needed for my parents (deceased), but they wouldn't take "old" copies of my father's death certificate (6 yrs old). I had to get a new certified copy to get the birth certificates.

1912 requirement

I've been thinking about the fact that only SF seems to list this requirement. Perhaps it dates back to the fact that in the SF jurisdiction, many people of Italian descent came during the Gold Rush years and stayed. Many of these people came from Genova. Perhaps they want to limit the number of app...

Good conduct certificate

This would be necessary for your spouse after you had obtained your citizenship through jure sanguinis. Jure sanguinis says that you are already a citizen, you just have to prove your lineage.

Citizeneship on BC

Penguindump, I made an error. I hadn't checked all of the death certificates for quite a while, but I did notice that they had spaces for Country of Birth. What I had been referring to was something that was on the old certificates of death. For my grandfather, who died in l931, they listed both his...
