Before I start, let me say thank you to anyone that takes time out of their day to review my information.
I have been obtaining family documents for about 2 years now, whenever I have extra money to spend or more importantly, the time. My first question is this: Am i entitled to receive dual citizenship from Italy? I am believe so, but I am not 100% sure. My mothers 4 grandparents were born in Italy.
Ok, here we go, and I hope this is not too confusing:
Rita Giordano ((my mother)-Mary Massimino((my maternal grandmother)) Angelina Allegra((my maternal great-grandmother- born October 2, 1882, died July 27, 1970)) and Girolamo Massimino((GGF- born Dec 1882, naturalized Aug 25, 1926, died ? 1961)) AA and GM are both from Catania, Sicily.
RG ((mom))-Amadeo Giordano ((my maternal grandfather-born May 10, 1913 died December 23, 1969)), Palma ((my maternal GGM, dont know her maiden name)), Raffaele Giordano ((my maternal GGF)) were both from Napoli.
My fathers maternal grandparents were born in Italy as well. My fathers paternal grandparents were born in Greece. James Alexander((my father))-Vincenza Forgione((my paternal grandmother, born September 2, 1924 died January 29, 1991)) Angiola Del Toro((my paternal GGM born January 4, 1892)) Giuseppe Forgione((my GGF born March 2, 1883)) Married on February 22, 1913.
ADT and GF-born and married in Calitri, Avellino, Campagnia Italy.
As you can see, I am missing some important dates so this has become quite challenging. ((especially there is no one to ask questions to anymore))
I have my fathers birth certificate, my parents marriage license, Vincenza Forgione's birth and death certificates, Nicholas Alexanders ((paternal grandfather)) Birth and death certificates, Guiseppe Forgione's verification of naturalization papers, and Marriage certificate from Calitri, Italy.
So-what do I need to do next?? Even if this does not work out, at least I will have very interesting and very important family history documents.
again, thank you for your time...
