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

Paul Silverstone

Some of my relatives obtained their Canadian citizenship years after
arriving. Many of their records were destroyed, especially those that
became citizens before 1900.
On the reverse side, a Canadian woman marrying a citizen of another
country lost her Canadian citizenship. My mother married in 1930 to a
US citizen for instance. Since they were not living in the US, but in
Britain, she eventually received a British passport (Canada being
British), until she was naturalized in the US in 1942, three years after
arriving in NY. When they wanted to travel together in 1930 she
received a paper from the US consulate in London identifying her as
married to an American citizen.
