US citizenship history

Just out of curiosity, how many generations are you from your first family member becoming a US Citizen? For example I am a 2ed Generation American. All my granparents came to this country from Germany or Czechloslovakia just prior to, or just after, WW1.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

One side of my family, I am 2nd Generation as part of family came here after fighting in World War II. On the other side, my family helped found one of the earliest cities in Pennsylvania.

Re: US citizenship history

My mother's great grandfather and grandfather emigrated from Poland after WWI. Her Grandmother came here from Poland in the late 20's My dad's mother's family emigrated from Ireland in 1825. Not sure when his Dad's family got here from Scotland but it was pretty early on in our country's history.

Re: US citizenship history

I had relatives in the civil war, both sides but don't know when they arrived.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: US citizenship history

My 4th great grandfather was a Hessian Soldier (Mercenary) who fought for the British. He was captured and then decided to fight for the colonists. After the war he settled in Port Matilda and opened a Grist Mill.

Re: US citizenship history

I have a GGGGrandmother who was Seneca Indian, not sure when her family arrived in Pa

On my Dad's side his namesake came from Ireland in the early 1770's, his Mothers side from Austria late 1700's.

My Mom's side from Ireland and Germany early 1800's.

My wife is a direct descendant of the man (Warren) who built the first permanent home in Virginia, she is also the direct descendant of a man who was a member of the "Halifax district Brigade of Militia" Nash co N.C. Est. May 1776

They have traced their family back into the 1500's.

My Kids have family members (starting on their Mothers side) who have fought in every war and conflict starting with the Revolution right up to todays events in the middle east.

For those who fought for it, Life has a flavor the protected will never know.
