FAQ: Why didn't you approach the Romanian authorities?

I have indeed read NG's original posting. However, after making many enquiries...some of which appear rather unlikely and indeed less than FINALLY dawns on her that maybe her mother being Romanian MIGHT be of help? Christ, it's the FIRST thing I would go for...ASKING the Romanian authorities! Correct me if I am wrong, but it appears that she didn't pursue this avenue. When you trying to get citizenship of a country, the most logical step would appear to be to go to the relevant authorities and say " My mother (or whoever) was once a citizen of the country", to be told, I would assume "Oh, really? Then you are eligible as she is still a citizen."

Incidentally NG, why do the Romanian authorities concern themselves so much with your marriage cert, if you are marrying a Peruvian? If you were marrying a Romanian, that in itself would in it four years?...qualify you. But why are they concerned with a Peruvian?

I've contact the Romanian consulate in Chicago. We're going through the long process, It's take about two years. They are concerned with my mother's marriage cert, as her name on birth cert is different than her marriage cert and her naturalisation cert. My mother was born a Romanian citizen and has always been one.

They're concerned with the Peruvian docs, because I'd have to register my Peruvian marriage with the Romanian authorities.
