Confused on 1948 rule do i qualify?

Postby travele799 » Wed Oct 24, 2007 3:39 pm

Sure this has been asked to death, but I am so close to having all the paperwork I just want to make sure that I qualify before I go into the consulate!

Great grandfather born in Italy in 1882
Grandfather born in USA in 1910
Great granfather naturalized in 1944
Mother born in USA in Dec of 1947
I was born (male)in USA 1975

Do I qualify>?

Thanks for the help!

Thank you for the quick response! Now all I need to do is get the naturalization paper for my grandfather and I am ready to go!

If your grandfather naturalized is a federal court, the process is simple. Simply call or visit a NARA office.

http://www.archives.gov/locations/

They may well have your grandfather's petition, declaration of intent and oath of allegience. NARA works quickly--one to two weeks by mail; one to two hours if you visit their offices personally.

Yes it is for my great grandfather. By the way I called the NARA number and talked to a geneologist and he said it would in fact be better to get the records from the Disctrict court. SO I called them and left a message today. Thanks again for all the help...once I tunr in all my paperwork I will let you know how it goes if anyone wants to hear...

Sorry if I'm being dense, but if your ggf was naturalized, then doesn't it mean your gf is a US citizen and so are you??
Also, I am pretty sure my gm was never naturalized and remember reading about how to determine that somewhere on this site but I cannot find it now. Anybody have any suggestions?
Many Thanks.

Some at ItalianGenealogy.com have paid subscriptions to footnote.com and ancestry.com and are willing to do look-ups--and it seems that many naturalization records--or at least the index cards are available online. There seems to be much more naturalization information online than even 6 months ago. Good luck, Peg
