Does the Declaration of Intention constitute the "renouncement of foreign citizenship" or does the Petition for Naturaliztion, the "formal" renouncement of citizenship. My issue:
My grandfather came to the United States in 1902. On his Declaration of Intention dated 1942 on line 13, states "I have heretofore made declation of intention: No. ? on 1907-1908 at Waco Texas, in ? (name of court). My father was born 1922. He filed his Declaration of Intention and Petition for Naturaliztion on Dec. 3rd, 1942. On May 25th, 1945 he took the oath of Allegience. I was born in 1950.
