Before I started all I knew of my grandfather's history was that he was a detainee during WW2 - we didn't even know his date of birth.I was fortunate in that I found my grandfather's naturalization records through the fact that he was registered as a CA=civil alien during the war.With great help from the NAA and my visit to the Melbourne premises last December I now know his date of birth, what ship brought him to Australia and where he boarded, Where he was born and the names of his mother and father. Now I'm hoping for a similar result for my grandmother. I even have a copy of his passport which has a photo and description of him.

My search commenced with three Matteo Lombardis coming to Australia from Italy. So I guess Michelle if you have a number of your naturalization certificate? or is this what you are trying to find? Do you have a place? a town hall. Or perhaps you were part of a parent package. the reason I say this is because my mother was not on the passenger list of the Re d'Italia when she came out at the age of 3 with her mother. When I asked why I was told it was not unusual for children to be not listed and I did hear of it causing great problems when someone wanted to prove that they did exist and did immigrate.

Hi again, Michelle

If you were 9 or 10 (when you were naturalised) in 1984 or 1985 or earlier, you can get your naturalisation records from the National Archives.  Unfortunately, if you didn't turn 9/10 until after this time you will need to contact the Department of Immigration & Citizenship.

Best of luck
