The New England Historic Genealogical Society will present “Applying for Dual Citizenship by Descent” on Thursday, August 16 at 3 p.m. While most countries base citizenship on place of birth, parentage, and marriage, there are a handful of countries that also offer citizenship by descent — meaning if you have ancestors who were citizens of that country two, three, or even four generations back, you might qualify for dual citizenship! Two well-known examples are Italy and Ireland. In this webinar, Senior Genealogist Rhonda R. McClure will go over the requirements involved, gathering documentation, applying—and waiting—for dual citizenship.
