I read some time ago that PA meant that citizenship had been applied
for and was pending. PA appears in the 1920 census for my father's
family in Chicago. They had never been in Pennsylvania. I do not know
what AL means. Two-letter acronyms for states did not come into
wide-spread usage until after zip codes were introduced.

In the NATURALISATION column in the 1930 U S census some have put PA
and others have put AL.
What does PA mean and does AL stand for alien?
