Declaration of Intent or Naturalization?

Postby brockandlaura » Mon Apr 21, 2008 6:55 pm

My Great Grand Father filed a Declaration of Intent one year before my grandfather was born. His Petition for Naturalization was approved a year and a half after my grandfather was born. Which date matters?

It's the actual naturalization that counts. You're ok.

I am in nearly the same situation.
-by Jan. 16, 1920 my great grandfather had filed his Declaration on Intention ("first papers")
-My grandfather was born on Feb. 12, 1920.

So, assuming that the my great grandfather's Naturalization Petition was not granted until AT LEAST Feb. 13th, 1920, I'm all set, right?
