On the card, in the field labeled Country of Birth or Allegiance it says "USA
Rep. Amer.". Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what this means? Did she
renounce her American citizenship and have to be repatriated? Is that what Rep.
Amer. means?
"Rep. Amer." does, in fact, mean "Repatriated American". She either gave
up her citizenship voluntarily, or lost it by marriage to a foreign born man.
