Naturalizations Needed? #southafrica

Jonny
 

Both sets of my grandparents immigrated to SA in the 1920s and 1930s.
One set came >from England and were British citizens. The other set
came >from Palestine, at that time a British protectorate under a
League of Nations mandate.

Accordingly, as South Africa was still a British colony in those days,
I believe, would there have been any need for them to have gone
through a naturalization process?

Thanks in advance for all responses.

If anyone could connect me with her please, I would be so grateful.

Re: missing manifest page #general

jeremy frankel
 

Further to Joel Weintraub's excellent comment recently (26 Feb 2019)
there is another point worth reiterating every few years, regarding
passenger manifests for ships arriving in New York between 1897 and
1903 (though I don't believe in this instance it's a possibility
because there exists a detention page).

The point is that (for this period) when a ship arrived at New York,
the manifest was literally torn in two. The section containing first
and second class passengers stayed with the ship when it docked in
New York. These passengers were checked by Customs staff as they were
not considered to be of 'immigrants' status (even if they were
immigrants). However, as we know, steerage class passengers were
barged over to Ellis Island (along with their portion of the manifest)
and inspected by immigration staff (not Customs).

The two portions were never "reunited", so that years later when the
indexing was carried out the first and second class passengers were
never indexed. Hence, if your ancestor was lucky enough to travel
first or second class, and immigrated between 1897 and 1903, this
could be the reason why you can't find them.

I know because this happened to me when my great grandmother's brother
Edward Prince, and his very recent bride of just a few days immigrated
from London to New York. (And no, I've not definitively located them
via the UK Outbound lists.)

This issue has been investigated even more thoroughly by Marian Smith,
Historian to the former Immigration and Naturalization Service.
