Use genealogy research to obtain a new passport and grow your family tree.

While most countries base citizenship on place of birth, parentage, and marriage, some countries 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 presentation, Senior Genealogist Rhonda R. McClure will go over the requirements involved for these two countries, gathering documentation, applying—and waiting—for dual citizenship. 

Rhonda R. McClure, Senior Genealogist, is a nationally recognized professional genealogist and lecturer. Before joining American Ancestors/NEHGS in 2006, she ran her own genealogical business for 18 years.
