We came to the USA when I was 4yrs old on 1/14/68. My mom became US citizen in 1970. My dad did not want to be a US citizen at that time and since has become. Since my mom was a US citizen would that make me and my sister a US Citizen automatically? How can I obtain this

Dual citizen info
Tania, I just received notice that my portuguese citizenship was approved by the Portuguese government. I submitted the paperwork at the New Bedford consulate. It took about 5 weeks.

You will need a certified birth certificate, your parent's birth certificates and a certified marriage certificate if you're married. You will also need to forms of photo ID (license and passport). If your parents were married in the United States, their marriage needs to be recorded in Portugal. You also need to pay the fee in cash. I showed up to the consulate at 8:30 when they opened and was on my way by 9am. Just show up with the paperwork and fee and they will take care of the rest. They were wonderful! Good luck!

Dupla Nacionalidade

I', trying to get my dual nationality. My parents are citizens of Portugal and are now US citizens as well. I've emailed mail@cnnbf.dgaccp.pt as well called (508) 993.5741. I haven't recieved an email back and am unable to leave a voicemail message. At this point I'm a bit desperate as I have tried to contact the consulate in Boston as well. I'm traveling to Portugal in the Summer and would really love to get this settled.

Thank you

Search for family members on BOA VISTA ,Capo Verde
Would the Postal Generals office have names of their recipients on the 10 Islands under its charge in the delivery of postal correspondence and or packages.
If it is possible to search the data to locate relatives names that I might be able to write to. There is the LIETE family also related, cousing of Assencao.
Thank you for your assistance.Eugenio

Seeking birth certificate of my father born in Cape Verde in the year 1887,March 12.
I have tried to locate a family history but at my age now most of the contacts have long passed on. He ahving been born in a Portuguese possion at the time and being so long ago-1887. I was wondering if the records/archives would be availabe toe if I traveled to Boston. Any assistance would be appreciated by anyone who might remember the Assencao family of Boa Vista,Cabo Verde. A sister Rita Maria is the only information I have other than he lived in New Bedford when he first arrived prior to being naturalized as a citizen in 1928.
