Found my illegitmate great-grandfathers nati record at FHC

Postby carmine1917 » 02 Apr 2010, 00:34

When my sister lived in Italy, she went to the commune and got the marriage certificate and on this marriage certificate it said where he was born. I ordered this film from FHC and there was his Nati record. I know, it was pure luck!

Now I can not find any record of him becoming an American citizen. I have searched all over NYC and nothing, but my Mother insist that he became a citizen, claims she saw the papers. but her step-monster threw everything out when her father died. Her step-monster was pure evil!

Have you tried all these?:

Is he in the census? If so, does that say he's naturalized?

And military records- they may have citizenship status on there.

Some states have naturalization records online. Have you checked your state's site?

Those are the first 3 places I'd try.
