    I hope someone will be able to help me out by giving me some information on this.
    My grandmother is part of the Bulgarian minority in Serbia (she was born in one of the areas that was ceded to Yugoslavia from Bulgaria after WW1) - her whole bloodline is Bulgarian.

    I was wondering if I am eligible for Bulgarian citizenship? My father never applied and only holds Serbian nationality - is it possible to skip a generation when I apply or will he have to obtain it first?

    Happy Easter!
