    RQFC-topic: Family History
    RQFC Details: Our Grandad came to U.S.A. from Bohemia in late 1800's. He died in 1912. On his tombstone is the Masonic Symbol. I have'nt been able to find records that he was ever a nationalized citizen. Could you please tell me if he would have had to be a citizen before being a member of the Masons, and if the local chapter would have a record? Thanks! Susan
