Re: Decipher handwritten text re citizenship status #records
1. Probably Father's papers. His father naturalized while Sam was a minor. See if Sam's age matches the year of his father's naturalization.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
2. She could show her husband's naturalization certificate along with her marriage certificate. If it came to a court case, and she had neither document i.e., married in Europe, no Ketuba, the naturalization could be obtained from the court and there could be people to attest to the facts of marriage.

I'm trying to decipther the handwritten entry for "Citizenship" on a 1925 NY census. In the column "If Naturalized, when and where" there are entries for my ggf Morris, ggm Clara and gu Sam. The first entry, for Morris, presumably means "naturalized in 1916 in New York". The second entry, his wife Clara, I think says "Hus. Pap." which probably means she gained citizenship under her husband's naturalization papers. (on this census page, most of the wives have this notation)
