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.

Part of the naturalization process:
filed 'Declaration of Intention' to become a citizen

neat resource:
questions asked on WWI Cards
(scroll down on St Louis Library page)

Thanks for the info,VJ.

My father was born in the US in 1913. If my grandfather was not yet naturalized in 1917, does that mean I am eligible for Italian citizenship?
