Lucia Cugini arrived on the Cedric, out of Naples on Dec. 31, 1909 out of the Port of Naples. With her was son Donato Piselli, age 3, and Pasquale Piselli age 11 months, all born San Donato. She left her father, Cresidio in Italy, and on the way to meet her husband, Vincenzo Peselli.
The paperwork for Vincent Piselli's declaration of intent is in volume 130, the declaration page is 118, and the year 1916. The Petition is in Vol 178, the Petition Page is 189. You can contact the NARA via e-mail and request info. It appears they were not naturalized before 1920...this means they could have been born after the birth of Anthony...which would qualify you for dual citizenship. If the date was after 1922, Lucy would have had to apply separately..so even though she is listed on the census of 1930 as naturalized, she may never have been...which makes Anthony born prior to any change of citizenship and you elegible for dual citizenship. You will have to verify this information in order to get the proof you need.
