Citizenship status on census sheets #records


Richard Stower
 

My paternal grandmother, Chana Ester (nee Spierman) (Seche)Stower arrived in New York City in 1906 from Kolomyya, now Ukraine. She married my grandfather, Gustave (Seche)Stower in 1908. On the  census forms it is noted that my grandmother was a naturalized citizen. I cannot locate any petition or certificate of naturalization for her although I can for my grandfather.

When talking to the census taker was the person obligated to show a naturalization petition or certificate or did they merely self-declare their status?

Thank you.
