    Dummett was in an accident. Sounds like he got hurt pretty bad. A couple of posts at fogbow starts here::

    From the discussion on the Fogbow, that would appear to be accurate.

    In this narrow instance, Mr. Nash is correct. The law in 1961 required the US parent to have lived in the United States for 5 years after the age of 14 to pass on US citizenship (when the other parent was not a US Citizen). Ann Dunham was only 18 years old.

    Doc,
    I’m only asking this for my own education, not to cause further debate. I was under the impression that the above was for circumstances when the child was born outside the U.S., not in the country. Am I mistaken; this was the law for all births in and out of the U.S.?

    A child born in the U.S. (and subject to its jurisdiction) is automatically a natural born citizen, regardless of the citizenship — or age — of his or her parents. It’s only for children born outside the country that a parent’s citizenship or age might be relevant to the determination of the citizenship of the child
