Re: Question On Becoming A Citizen in 1920s Canada #canada

Avrum Lapin

My grandfather became a Canadian citizen in Nov 1906 after residing 3 1/2 years in Canada (per his naturalization Certificate)

At some time in 1905 (per the St Albans list) he travelled by train to New York where he was introduced to my Grandmother. He returned to Montreal and after an approximately one year correspond returned to Brooklyn, married my Grandmother. and then they both took up residence in Canada.

My grandmother did not become a Canadian citizen until 1941. (possibly a wartime need for a passport to visit cousins in New York

The Canadian Naturalization Act that was inforce in 1906 governed the length of residence needed for citizen ship
