Welcome to our website. I've been following discussions at your HyNE site for some time, and have recommended it to our members who, like me, are interested in obtaining dual nationality.

Some of our members are monolingual, and it would be helpful if you would post updated information here in English, or better yet, both English and Spanish, which would allow all of our members to follow the issue.

The HyNE website (Hijos y Nieto de Españoles) website is http://groups.msn.com/nietosporlaciudadania

Raul o Jose,

Have either of you made any strides since your last posts? I'm only 23 years old; however, my grandfather was born in Puerto Rico in 1893 when it was still a Spanish province.

I contacted the Spanish Consulate in Chicago and they told me that I wouldn't qualify because the law would only apply to me if he had been born in the Iberian Penn.

Just wondering what news you all may have.

Thanks,

Oscar

I don't think that the regulations to implement the new law have been approved yet, and it may still take a while for new information to trickle down to the consulates. I would suggest communicating directly with the Ministerio de Justicia, in Spanish, of course. Also, see the above posts for a good source of information.

Under the new law )the regulations for which will not be published until December 2008) you should be eligible for citizenship. Now is the time to start getting all your documents (birth and marriage certificates) in line.

If you want on the fast track to Spanish citizenship, start practicing soccer. Google Ronaldinho and Marcos Senna for more info.

The new law, as I understand it, applies only to grandchildren, not great grandchildren. I suggest browsing the threads at http://groups.msn.com/nietosporlaciudadania

Birth records since 1871 are available from the various registros civiles, but you have to now where your ancestor was born to know which one to ask. If you post whatever information you have, some of our members may be able to help. Since many of our members are monolingual, posting in both English and Spanish is a good idea.

For earlier dates, there are also parish records.

It would be cheaper just to write for the records. Quite a few registros civiles provide for on-line requests. See http://www.justizia.net/RegistroCivil/Default.asp?idioma=sp&accion=jpaz

Es muy importante indicar que la Ley de Memoria histórica concederá la nacionalidad española a los nietos de aquellos españoles que tuvieron que exiiarse como consecuencia de la Guerra civil de 1936-1939.

Este matiz es importantísimo y estamos a la espera del desarrollo de la Ley.

Alegret

Good day. My wife is a Filipina but her grandfather, was originally a Spanish citizen from Santander, Spain who immigrated, settled and lived in the Philippines from 1935-1979. He married a Filipina and bore children who were raised here in the Philippines. Some of his children became Spanish citizens who availed of an earlier law in 2000(im not so sure of the date), granting Spanish citizenship to children of Spanish citizens born abroad.

My question is, can my wife apply for Spanish citizenship under the new law of historical memory granting spanish citizenship to grandchildren? She has a birth certificate of her grandfather showing that he was indeed born in Santander, Spain. If ever she becomes a Spanish citizen, does her minor child also become automatic Spanish citizens? If she is qualified, can we already start applying with the local spanish embassy since i heard it will only take effect this December 28, 2008?

I hope that you will enlighten me on this. We really not need some knowledge on this matter and I hope that your good site can help us on this even if we are not asturians. we know that we share a common interest and your help will be greatly appreciated. thank you very much sir!
