You can get an Irish passport if you have a parent or grandparent that was born in Ireland. (Both of my parents were born in Ireland) Several other European countries have similiar rules. Here's the article I saw back in June that prompted me to apply.

O well....
I'm out of luck.
My ancestors came from Scotland - and I don't have a clue who they were. :(

Happy for you, though.

Yeah me too. My grannies were both into genealogy and was very happy that all sides of our family had been America "forever." So perhaps we first arrivers are "trapped" here. Maybe I could sneak along in DW's suitcase, her grannie was from England.

In the UK it used to be the same, except that if you were born abroad they had to register you at birth. Even with a parent/grandparent from the UK, these days you can no longer get a passport just based on that.

I have a UK passport because I was born there to US citizen parents. I use it when I travel in the EU.

That's interesting. I found out awhile back that I qualify for Italian citizenship based on the fact that (1) my grandfather, who was born in Italy, didn't become an American citizen until after my father was born, and (2) my father never formally renounced his Italian citizenship which he automatically had because of that, even though he was born in the U.S. (I'm sure my father never realized he was an Italian citizen).

Of course, to claim Italian citizenship, I'd have to gather all the documentation to prove it (birth and marriage certificates, etc.) which I haven't done yet because I've been lazy, but it's definitely on my "to do" list.

I'm surprised by just how many people I know who have dual citizenship... it's not at all uncommon.
