William Mills - Certificate of Citizenship

I finally scanned all the pages of Aliene's Family History and and working my way through it slowly. There is so much information in there and lots of it needs to be verified. Luckily, she included some (copies of) original documents. Here's the Certificate of Citizenship for her Maternal Grandfather, William Mills.
