Citizenship Day

Today marks the anniversary of the adoption of the United States Constitution, a day that finds many of us looking back at who we are and where we came from.  Did you know that until 2004 this day was known as “Citizenship Day”? It was, and continues to be a day that we recognize “all who are born in the U.S. or, by naturalization, have become citizens.”

Many of us don’t have to go too far back in our ancestry to find our first naturalized grandparent.  On one side of my family, I am a third-generation born U.S. citizen. That’s pretty recent. How new is your U.S. family?
