Dual Citizenship

Jump to last reply

So many of you are so helpful. Perhaps you can offer me some advice.

I'd like to apply for dual citizenship (American/Irish).

Both my maternal grandparents were born in Ireland and both died in the United States.

I know the counties they were born in in Ireland and I know the dates of their deaths.

In trying to get a death certificate for my grandfather who died in a hospital in New Jersey, I was informed I'd need his father's name and his mother's (my great grandparents).

There are no known relatives to whom to go for that information.

My grandmother died in New York City and I haven't the slightest idea where to go for her death certificate.

My grandfather died in 1959 and I was told the hospital routinely destroys such 'antiquated' certificates.

My grandmother died around 10 years before that.

In order to apply for dual citizenship, I need, among other things, a death certificate and a birth certificate.

Do you have any suggestions who I should contact in New York for my grandmother's death certificate and any suggestions of sites in Ireland that might offer some help in locating their birth certificates?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Erica
