Hello,

1) The laws change constantly.

2) The 1940 census asks if the person is a naturalized US citizen

3) She would probably be on her fathers papers, that you have
not found them may be due to them not yet being indexed. Check your
grandmother's papers for any reference to her husband's status and
check the various court houses in the area. In NYC that would be
Southern NY, Eastern NY and the courts of the different counties.
Without a date, I would not begin to search.
I would wait for a company to index and check back from time to time.
Each company indexes different sources, try as many as you can, look out for
free access and take advantage of those days.

My grandmother's papers showed her husband's date and a number
(that I do not remember which), and I found the papers in Manhattan, but
it took weeks via the internet.

I think it was Ancestry that has scans of the records, but has not yet
indexed, you can search the scans.

My late mother came to the US in 1913 from what is now Biarosa, Belarus at the tender age of 6 months.  The only naturalization information that I can find is for my Grandmother dated 1945, but nothing for my Grandfather.  She married my father, a natural born citizen, in the 1930's.  Can I conclude that she was not a citizen?  Were the laws different then?
