Many of the civil records in Montenegro were destroyed during WWII. The reconstructions
of these records were usually based on the testimony of third parties and are not
reliable. Certifications of the reconstructed records often do not show they are reconstructed
As there is no postal service from the U.S. to Montenegro, individuals in the U.S.
cannot request records from that country. In addition, since the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade
has closed, SSA cannot verify birth records from Montenegro.
