"jure sanguinis" vs "ope legis"

Postby mattuchina » Wed Feb 09, 2011 5:40 pm

I just e-mailed Chicago Consulate to ask if I need special documentation or application to apply for citizenship via "ope legis", because my maternal grandfather was born in Pola,Istria 1905. Came to America in 1906. Naturalized in 1943. I guess Istria was given to Italy around 1920. "Ope Legis" recognizes that ex Austro-Hungarian area ,that is now no longer a part of Italy. My grandfathers Petition and Naturalization Cert's states he was Italian/from Italy. Please, do I apply "jure sanguins" or is there another application? Thank you/Grazie MATTUCHINA
