My paternal great-grandparents, Carl and Hilda Gillberg, emigrated from Sweden to the United States in the early 1900s. Both Carl and Hilda eventually became United States citizens. In a previous post, I shared with you a copy of Carl's Certificate of Naturalization. Today I'm happy to share with you a copy of Hilda's Certificate of Naturalization.
You may remember that Hilda's husband Carl filled out two Declarations of Intention, the first one in 1924 and the second one in 1939. It appears that Hilda only filled out one Declaration of Intention in 1939.
Carl became a citizen on July 10, 1942, and Hilda became a citizen on November 20, 1942. I wonder why they didn't become citizens on the same day.
