  1. Back then in 2005 I ticked the "Nein" box on the question "Vermeidung von Mehrstaatigkeit" and wrote the following reason (I still have a copy of the form in my files):   "Ich beziehe mich auf Paragraph 87  Absatz 2 Ausländergesetz, wonach von EU-Bürgern die Aufgabe  der bisherigen Staatsbürgerschaft nicht verlangt wird, deren Staaten dies von deutschen Bewerbern auch nicht verlangen, also das Prinzip der Gegenseitigkeit."  Of course, the legal situation is different now, as the UK has already left the EU and is now in the  transition period until the end of December. I don't know how this works with people from the UK applying for citizenship now.
  2. Back in 2005 when I applied in Ba-Wü the Meldebescheinigung was not needed, the Beamter told  me he had access to the records anyway. I still had the "unbefristete Aufenthaltsberechtigung" from the  early 90s and was asked to hand it in when I collected the Einbürgerungsurkunde: "You won't need  that anymore, you have citizenship".  I also did not need to provide translations of my birth certificate  or any other documents. The Beamter said "that's fine, I can read English". I think he wanted to  impress me with his knowledge of English.  Overall it was a surprisingly painless procedure for me.  Hope it works out for you as well!
