Sorry my appointment was in August. No appt in March. That is a typo. I still have to get the death certificate and have been procrastinating in doing so.

You had another appointment in March? Or are you referring to your appt last August? Last year you only needed a death cert and some documents authenticated. Is that done? Is your application complete? Are you just in mailbox watching mode?

Katja,

I'm not so confident in my cooking either, but have the opportunity to experiment on my family! LOL

Jann - You must keep them in mind! I mean, it's not Capri, but it is definitely worth the trip to see.

Jeani - I agree! Those pictures were taken by me of the islands. The photos do not do the islands and their surroundings justice though. In person is always better.

lucea - Thank you!

And thank you to anyone else who has stopped by!

Hi there!

Thanks for following my blog! I just noticed you are trying to get Italian citizenship.... I am in the middle of that process too. After going through the process of getting married here and getting my permesso di soggiorno here... I have become quite a pro with the crazy Italian system. Hope it is going smoothly for you! Buona fortuna! =)

What city do you live in right now?

"3. Ancestors naturalized before June 14, 1912 cannot transmit citizenship, even if the child was born before the naturalization occurred."

This is not quite true: The child would lose his Italian citizenship when his father naturalized before July 1, 1912 (the date on which the law took effect), only if the child was still an unemancipated minor (i.e., under 21 years old) at that time. Moreover, I believe the child would have had to have been living abroad (i.e., not in Italy), too. This is in the 1865 Civil Code.

These were not even on my radar! I loved Puglia when I was there so I'll keep these islands in mind for my next trip. I usually love any old island!

2010-11-10T14:49:34.083-05:00

It was nothing hysterical, just a cute joke I came across. I have yet to hear/read any Sicilian jokes. I think this one was only funny in dialect and Italian. After that, it's kind of lost its humor.

2010-11-08T05:35:31.632-05:00

I have to pass this one on to Nick, he's a sucker for a good joke, and has a long repertoire of them... All in Sicilian though (and mostly Rated R). You'd need to translate those too!!

KC - no, thank you! It was so nice of you to do the interview. I don't think your comment came through, as I didn't see it. Glad you were able to re-post it though as I love reading comments.

correction: *after I told them I wasn't applying here. (That was before I knew I would not be leaving.)

2010-10-13T14:26:46.476-04:00

Yes, unfortunately I am, only because the process differs from applying in Italy as opposed to here. In Italy, I would not need death certificates. I e-mailed the comune, and was told I only need birth and marriage certificates from the Italian side. Here they want (at least at the consulate in NJ) they want birth, marriage and death from BOTH sides.

I am not sure if I needed affidavits for over there, and contacting the consulate to look over my papers before I was supposed to leave, resulted in no response. For some reason, they were less responsive to me after I told them I was applying here. They asked, "why?" I said, "well I'm moving there and the process is much shorter over there." My guess is my answer was offensive. haha!

Hopefully they will allow me to meet with them before my appointment in August. I am trying to remain positive.

Thank you for your support!
