is my great grandmother a citizen?

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

I received my great grandmothers alien registration form today. so it says as of december 1951 she never even attempted to become a citizen. I am curious if her father did though did she? were the laws in place that would make her husband give it to her? also it came with a picture. its the first one I have ever seen. she looks exactly like my mom. I got to say it totally blew my mind. it was so effing cool to see! I got bigger goosebumps than when they told me my application was accepted. this is probably the most rewarding document so far.

It depends.

Where was your great-grandmother born, US or Italy?

When did her father naturalize? Was it before or after June, 1912?

How old was your great-grandmother when her father naturalized?

Your great-grandmother married a non-Italian? What year was that?

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)
