USCIS Webinar on "Records Lost": Women Who Lost Their Citizenship Through Marriage #general

Jan Meisels Allen

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) is offering a
free webinar on "Records Lost" on July 24, 2014 at 1:00PM EDT. The focus of
the webinar is about women who lost citizenship through marriage,
naturalization and repatriation between 1922-1956.

In 1907, the Expatriation Act mandated that all women acquired their
husband's nationality upon marriage - and between 1907 and 1922 many women
lost their US citizenship by marrying non-US citizens. This webinar examines
citizenship records documenting the resumption of US citizenship by these
women's through the naturalization under the 1922 Married Women's Act and
through an expedited repatriation program that started in 1936.
