Re: Naturalization #general
Robert and fellow researchers,
If you go to the following website, run by the now U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Service,
"After passage of an Act of February 10, 1855, immigrant women
were able to acquire U.S. citizenship without naturalization.
They became citizens upon marriage to a U.S. citizen husband,
or upon their husband’s naturalization. Like children, who
since 1790 acquired citizenship upon the naturalization of a
parent, women derived citizenship >from their husbands. A 1907
law took this concept further by providing that all U.S.-born
women who married aliens would lose their U.S. citizenship
upon marriage. It was not until 1922 that women’s citizenship
was separated >from that of their husbands. For more details,
see the history of women and naturalization on the Website of
the National Archives and Records Administration."

"Regarding this thread, could a wife be required to be naturalized under
her husband even if native born?..........
Could a wife lose her citizenship by marrying an alien?".........
