The Last Piece of Paper

In order to apply for Italian citizenship, the consulat required I get…

  • My grandfather’s birth certificate from Italy, his death certificate from Maryland, his marriage certficate from Connecticut, his naturalization papers from the US.
  • My grandmother’s birth certificate from Connecticut, her death certificate from Connecticut and her marriage certificate from Connecticut. Fortunately, she was married to my grandfather so that’s one less piece of paper.
  • My mother’s birth certificate from Connecticut, her marriage certificate from Connecticut.
  • My dad’s birth certificate from Connecticut, his death certficate from Connecticut, his marriage certificate from Connecticut. Fortunately, he married my mom, so that’s another piece of paper I didn’t have to worry about.
  • My birth certificate from Connecticut.
  • My sister’s birth certificate from Connecticut.
  • My nephews’ birth certificates from Florida.

After the arrival of all the certificates from all the various countries and states, I then had to send all the certificates BACK to their origin and have an apostille attached.

I have now received the last piece of paper. The last certificate with the last apostille. My “paperwork for Italian citizenship” folder has now become a box.

My next step is to have this box of paperwork translated into Italian.
