Cosmac, we are referring to the original post of George and Mary Kotchan.

  Anyhow I did get my grandfathers naturalization papers, which was awesome.     

 But the government didn't send any naturalization papers for my grandmother, Im thinking that back then maybe only one really had to do it.  ...

Pre- WWI a married woman (in U.S., Britain, etc.) assumed her husband's citizenship upon marriage. I believe this also applied to Canada but perhaps others will be able to confirm this.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Yes you are correct.  I received an email from our government saying the same thing.  Sucks.  But I'll
still keep looking for my grandmothers town.  Thanks all.

Hello grammatj8

I recently came across this forum.

I live in Fort William and I am related to Mary HRYHIRCZUK and George HRYHIRCZUK.

If you are interested I would very much be interested in chatting



thanks Karen, yes I found Johan Kotchan naturalization in the government thingy.  However I can't find George who is my grandfather, nor Marie or Mary Medved, or Medwid, or spelling is the problem, and I didn't look for Iftimia Johan's wife to see when she got naturalized. Her maiden name was Wiksyck.
