Which Year of Arrival on U.S. Citizenship Application?

Post by darkerhorse »

If an Italian immigrated to the U.S. in 1911, returned to Italy, and then immigrated again permanently in 1913, which year of arrival would be referenced on his application for U.S. citizenship?

Also, how common is it for a repeat immigrant to be recorded on a ship manifest mas never having been in the U.S. before?

Is there a reason an immigrant would lie about that?

Or is it more likely a recording error?
