I agree with accbgb, but these questions and oh-so-many-more are well answered on the Internet in the excellent one or a couple forums that specifically serve those seeking Italian citizenship recognition. Please do seek them out, seriously.

Default My experience

I went through the recognition process in New York. From soup to nuts it took me three years. I was very fortunate in that I have a name that is not common. Because my ancestor immigrated to Brooklyn I was able to look up the naturalization records online.

Even with all the records the consulate can still be arbitrary. Waiting times for an appointment can be long. Detroit has a reputation for prompt appointments. Miami can take two years for an appointment.

Since your cousin went through the process all the documents through your grandfather have been located. It may take some time and cost some money but all the heavy lifting has been done for you.

If your cousin went through the same consulate you will go through you will not need to reproduce all the documents through your grandfather. You will only need to add your father and forward.

BBCWATCHER is an admin on one of those sites. I think the site is very good. Is there a rule against posting a link to his site?

Since when is a url different to a link! Ends up in the same place you just use it differently.

My great-grandfather emigrated to the United States in 1905 and never renounced his Italian citizenship. He fathered my grandfather in 1932, who fathered my father in 1958, and here I am, born in 1995. According to the Italian Consulate's website, birthright citizenship extends to the direct descendants with no limit on generations. I'm going to give the Italian consulate in Detroit a call (I'm from Michigan) and see what they can do for me, however if I'm entitled to citizenship, I have a feeling that I have a flight to Rome in my near future.
If things haven't changed you'll need to document all that you've noted and provide this to the Detroit Consulate, pay your fee and you're in. After obtaining the documentation, it took me a couple of months to get my citizenship. I'm now living in Italy and have been here for the last 7 years. I'm not going back.

I have a feeling that I'd use my citizenship to go to England or somewhere else in the EU that is English-speaking. But again, I have a number of years (I'm a college kid) to figure this stuff out and get planned.

Yep, you have lots of time. If ever interested, I host one or two students to work on my small olive and grape orchard in exchange for their room / board. I live in northern italy in a small hill town above San Remo, an hour south of Nice France. Good luck with your plans and future.
