JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Question on naturalization #general


Leslie Weinberg <lbw@...>
 

I have been trying to locate papers for my husband's family without
success. My mother-in-law is 98, says she was always told she was
born in the U.S. but some family members say she came here as a
toddler. If she did arrive here with her parents, what wold the laws
be regarding her citizenship? I know that my husband's grandfather
was naturalized - although I have not found papers. We do not know
about his grandmother ( she did have a ss card - I sent for the
application. We could find no record of a card for his grandfather
on the SSDI).. Would his mother have had to be naturalized? Would
she automatically have become a citizen if either parent were
naturalized, and was there a time frame for that? Thanks in advance.
