The Expatriation Act of 1907 mandated that all women acquired their husband’s nationality upon marriage. As a result, between 1907 and 1922, countless women lost their U.S. citizenship through marriage to non-citizens. This month’s “Records Found” webinar examines citizenship records documenting these women’s resumption of U.S. citizenship, first through naturalization under the Married Women’s Act of 1922 and then through an expedited repatriation program inaugurated in 1936.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services division of the Department of Homeland Security will hold an online “webinar” on July 24 at 1:00 PM Eastern time. Details may be found at http://goo.gl/TqcZwP.
