Deriving citizenship in 1916? #general


Wendy Griswold
 

Hello cousins.

Again, I've been out of the loop for quite a while so please forgive
if I ask an unsophisticated question.

In 1916, would a foreign-born woman automatically derive citizenship
from her American-born husband? Would there be paperwork? Although her
age on her marriage cert is 18, she might have been as young as 16.
It's very unlikely she would have naturalized at that age and even
less likely that her parents would have naturalized by 1916.

Thanks for any input.
B'shalom
