Translations

We need to get our documents translated in order to start the process. First we have to go to an official translator. Fortunately Romania is part of the Hague Convention, so we only have to send it to the Sec of State after we get it translated. For countries outside of the Hague Convention, you have to also send it to Washington to get it authenticated.

Found a lawyer

After three years of trying to get through the Chicago consulate's red tape and contacting various lawyers both in Romania and in the USA, I think we've finally found someone competent to help us. Someone from this board knows a lawyer who could possibily help us. So maybe the end is in sight and I'll be getting citizenship soon. My mom has said that she doesn't want citizenship, but I think she should get it just in case my brothers and sister want it. My mom doesn't want it because she doesn't want to go to the Chicago Consulate anymore than she has too. My brothers and sister konw that I'm trying to get it, but haven't expressed any interest in getting it.

Hopefully in about two weeks we should know if the lawyer will except our case. Fingers crossed, I'll be Romanian before Christmas.

Got corrected docs

We got my mom's correct marriage cert and my correct birth cert. Now all the names match. I hope the consulate is happy.

Contacting lawyers

We've sent emails to two lawyers and are waiting to hear back from them. While going through old papers, I'm beginning to think that maybe my grandfather didn't have a passport. The exit papers that we found are covered with immigration stamps for Romania and the USA. So maybe he used that instead. Thanks to everyone who's sent PMs and emails. Hopefully this will work.
