My paternal grandfather was born in England and emigrated to America with his parents (above) in the ’20s. I heard a rumor that I could become a British citizen because of the location of my Grandfather’s birth, so I reached out to the British Embassy and they quickly responded.
I found out that the only way I could become a citizen by descent is if my dad had been born in England and was:
in Crown service (see paragraph 10), or
in designated service (see paragraph 11), or
in service under a European Community institution
Neither of those apply to him.
So, folks, I remain a US citizen only. My dreams of dual nationality shattered.
