just had dinner with my uncle the other night who decided to annouce to the family that he's working on getting himself (along with my cousins, my father and i) italian citizenship as a christmas present. i guess through my father's side, there is a direct link that allows us to be eligible for citizenship. not only am i thrilled (the thought of graduating college with an american and eu passport is amazing) but i'm a bit confused.
my uncle said he'd mail me the details, but if anyone knows more about this, please let me know. is this anything like the irish goverment granting those able to prove their irish roots a passport? also are there any americans on the boards with dual citizenship or a second passport? if so, what are some of the pros and con's that you've found?
any and all information would be greatly appreciated!
