Temporary Shutdown

Hello Everyone!

I am temporarily shutting down the blog as it is currently being re-vamped. I hope to unveil it within the next couple of weeks months.

Please note that I have finally put in my request for an appointment with the consulate to officially apply for citizenship!!!!!

A presto!

Citizenship Saturday: Do I Qualify Part III

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. The weather here is a bit glum, but thankfully the summer weather hasn't left us completely here in New Jersey. It has been chilly in the mornings and then gradually gets warmer throughout the day.

It has been quite some time since I last posted anything for Citizenship Saturday, so I thought I would post something in hopes of helping you. I have written about the Dual Citizenship Message Board before, but I wanted to share some links with you. A few members have done a wonderful job explaining the Jure Sanguinis Citizenship Recognition Process, and are posted under the section Qualifying - Jure Sanguinis when you open up to the homepage. In their posts, they have even included links to other great posts which further explain certain aspects of the process, including laws such as the 1912 law and the addition of women being able to pass down citizenship with the 1948 change.

The post the board recommends you read is titled 'Jure Sanguinis Citizenship Recognition Process'. He discusses topics like 'Do I Qualify',  determining which consulate to apply to, making amendments to documents, as well as other topics.

Please note: Before diving into this whole process if you have not yet started it is important to determine if you meet the necessary requirements. The process can be very expensive and very long, depending on how far back you are going in your family tree. It is better to know prior to starting the process if you do not qualify then to find out later down the road.
