New Year, New Findings

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

The week after Christmas, my microfilm of the Probate Docket in Utah County for 1858 arrived. I did not find Dominique and Harriet’s marriage. However, I did speak with someone in the LDS Church archives, who says they can send a letter regarding a blessing or a sealing. I’m pretty sure we could get Italy to accept those in lieu of birth and marriage certificates.

Today I’m sending off my requests for all the birth and death certificates from Utah, to be sent directly to the Lieutenant Governor’s office for Apostilles.

Also, the Denver NARA searched for Domenico’s naturalization record for me and found nothing, and if I email them will send me a letter to that effect.

Once I get Domenico’s death certificate, I can send a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to CIS (Citizenship and Immigration) for a search to be done on Dominique. I need a certified letter from them saying he was never naturalized, at least not after 1906.

Things are moving along merrily.
