I was hoping someone could answer some questions regarding dual citizenship for me.
My mother was born in 1944 in the USA. Her father was born in Italy in 1918. He came to this country in 1920's. His father naturalized in 1927 when my grandfather was 9. Was my grandfather automatically naturalized under his father? Is there any chance my mom can claim dual citizenship?
It was my understanding that minor male children kept their citizenship, even if their father naturalized.
I was told today that I need to prove he was still an Italian citizen when my mother was born. Any suggestions?
Thank you so much.
