Anna L. Edwards

After a long career as an American immigration lawyer, nowadays Anna focuses on providing genealogical, immigration history and vital records research and document services for U.S. citizens making applications for a second citizenship. Anna is herself of Italian descent from the province of Trentino and obtained her Italian citizenship.

Anna established her practice in New York City, the heart of the immigrant identity of the U.S. and where many U.S. ancestor records are archived. Valuable records resources include the regional National Archives here, as well as all the courthouses, and civic, religious and institutional archives throughout the boroughs, often in dusty attics and basements. Many important documents for citizenship cannot be found digitally.

Anna enjoys locating hard-to-find records that resolve ambiguity around blood relationships, immigration & naturalization timelines, and frequent name discrepancies. We locate and obtain records, and also obtain necessary translations, certifications, and Apostille for submission to foreign governments.
