I am currently having a hard time finding a long form version of this law in English, but I have some basic information about my mother if y'all can help. Here's a list of facts followed by a list of questions.

  • One side of my mother's family is Czech, through her father.

  • My mother's great grandparents were born in Czechia in 1863, 1859, 1862,and 1865. These great grandparents were married in Czechia in 1884 and 1880. We have records of these births and marriages that are all displayed in Czech archives. We have immigration records to the United States from one group, and death records from another.

  • My mother's grandparents on the Czech side of her family were born in Czechia in 1886 and 1880, and were married in 1905 before immigrating to America in 1906. There are census records and births in the United States, along with immigration records that confirm this. They died in the 1940s in the United States, after living there for 40 years. The grandfather applied for US Citizenship, whereas the grandfather did not.

  • My mother's father was born in 1913 in the United States. Her mother gave birth to her out of wedlock in 1959, and our family was aware of the father and his family for quite some time. His brother was born in Czechia in 1906 and was naturalized in the USA later.

  • Basically, my mother was born out of wedlock in 1959 and genetics tests prove the fact as well, proving her relationship to her Czech grandparents. My mother's mother is irrelevant, her family was is from the USA for a very long time.

  • As stated, we have extensive records of all of this.

The questions are:

  1. Does she qualify for Czech citizenship under this new law?

  2. If not, why?

  3. If yes, could this citizenship be passed to her children and grandchildren?

Thank you for your time.
