Jean Louis Goasdoue naturalised in 1920

The fun thing about genealogy research are the little nuggets of information you stumble across.  Today I was randomly searching in and came across a reference to Jean Louis Goasdoue (grandfather Yves brother, also known as Gros Jean) in the UK National Archives.

Turns out, he became naturalised (from French) in 1920. Now the annoying thing about these little nuggets of information is all the questions that arise!  Why did he choose to do this? Why didn’t anyone else in the family?

The record itself has not been released (there is just an index record) and I’m not sure if it is worth paying to get it digitised in full – would it contain any useful information?

Here’s the link in case you’re interested to look for yourself. Oh and the next time you are in London, perhaps you can visit the archives to see it in person? That would be great!
