JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Can a Person who was Imprisoned have been Naturalized? #general


I am trying to determine if someone is my great-grandfather or not. (There may be
two people with the same name; or maybe not.) Can a person who was convicted of a
crime and then served time in Sing Sing have come out and then be able to be
naturalized as a US citizen? Does anyone know? This would have been in the 1898 to
1905 period.

(If so, then my great grandfather was in prison since the names match, but then he
was naturalized. So I want to know if this is him.)

Thanks very much.
