appointment at philly consulate

Postby belmoro19 » Wed Aug 04, 2010 8:57 am

Just wanted to give some information. This forum has been very helpful to me and wanted to thank everyone for their advice. much appreciated.
I have noticed alot of posts like my own that have missing marrige records for their ancestors, etc and thought I would share my experience with the philly consulate.
I contacted the consulate in regards to the fact that i am missing my grandparents marriage certificate and to see if i should or could apply for italian citizenship. I did inform them of the many no record letters that I have from many agencies, churches, funeral home and the like.
I do not know the person's name that I contacted via email but they informed me that if I could bring a copy of a census that has them listed as married or at least living together that they would accept it. I found the census from 1950( which was not cheap $95). I hope that this does not change when I have my appoinment in February. Should I bring a copy of the email with me to be on the safe side?
There is hope hope out there for us. So don't give. Trust me, I have been tempted many times, but this is something that I really want and will not give up until I exhaust all options!!! I have bben gathering documents for many years so I hope that this all pays off.

Buona fortuna a tutti

The United States Census from 1950 is not a public record. What is the actual record that you have?

What I have is a certified transcription from the census bureau with my grandparents' information it and has a seal on it. It is not an actual copy of the census record but it is from the bureau and it is certified.

OK! The census records are sealed for 72 years.

This pdf file can explain it better than I can. www.census.gov/genealogy/www/bc-600.pdf This is what I used.It is the application for census records 1940 and later. Not sure I pasted this correctly but it is the website.
