GF never natuarlized - letter of no record?

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.

GF never natuarlized - letter of no record?

Postby lisahickey » 05 Feb 2014, 19:43

I am helping a friend with this process and her grandfather, who is still alive and does not ever remember being naturalized, immigrated with his parents (he was born in Italy) as a child. His father was naturalized, but he does not remember having been so. His father was naturalized in the 20s and our understanding is that the GF was sort of automatically given citizenship, but has never renounced his Italian citizenship formally. Does this make his descendents elligible for citizenship through descent? Thanks for your help with this. Also, oddly, no one in the family is showing up in any census records or marriage or death records - the name is Angelo Mascaro (son Eugene) in Warren, PA from Feroleto. Any thoughts about why that might be or where to look?

If you provide some additional details, maybe we can locate US Censuses and/or Angelo's naturalization record :-)

What is the approx. year of Angelo's birth?
What was his wife's name (Eugenio's mother)?
Did Eugenio have any brothers/sisters?
Do you know if they lived anywhere else in USA before settling in Warren, PA?
Angelo's occupation?

Thank you! Yes, that is he. How did you find this? I use ancestry and he didn't show up in the 1940 census in their records.
best,
Lisa

Thanks Teresa - we found Angelo's naturalization record in the Warren courthouse, and I am waiting to see those, but the situation is complicated - I just posted about it. It seems they always lived in Warren, although Angelo may have been in NY many years before.
