Thank you so much. My grandfather claimed to have applied in 1917 on the 1920 census. Now I need to figure out if he had done so. This adds to the mystery because he returned to Poland in September 1924 after my parents got married. He never returned. My mother and her brother were born here in Chicago, but they had three younger siblings born with in Poland. I was trying to find out if he had actually become a citizen, but it looks like he had not. Great service, thanks so much. Ruth
