Re: Finding Out You Lost Your Citizenship #events

Carl,

The same thing happened to my husband's ggm.  She was born in Manhattan, but in 1913 married a man who was not yet naturalized. 

Upon marriage she lost her U.S. citizenship, even though she was born in the U.S. and had never left the U.S.

These women had to go through a formal naturalization process to regain their U.S. citizenship.

I have her naturalization papers, and it is very strange to see nat papers for someone born in New York.

Women did not get the vote in the U.S. (on the national level) until 1920.

Regards,
