At the Warren B. Rudman Courthouse in Concord Friday morning, 81 people from 36 different countries took an oath and became American citizens.

Governor Maggie Hassan spoke at the naturalization ceremony.

Among those sworn in was a man originally from India who now lives in Hudson with his wife and their six month old child.

There was also a husband and wife, both native Kenyans, who became citizens together. They live in Lee with their four children.

And a Manchester man who moved to America from Sweden who said his citizenship was a long time coming.
