So who here has dual citizenship? And how did you go about getting it? I'm wondering since my sister and I have been trying to find some way to get it "jus sanguinis" but as of yet we have had no avail. The UK is so stubborn and only lets one generation born outside of the UK get British citizenship (my Grandmother was born in Scotland), so we can't figure out a way around that. And my mom who does qualify doesn't even care about it . Then I looked at German citizenship because my Great-grandparents on my Dad's side were from Germany, but I found out that back in the 1870 through early 1900's if you lived outside Germany for 10 years you lost your citizenship there. I wonder how strickly they check that? For instance how do they prove when said person left Germany? Ellis Island wasn't around back when he first came.
