My Great Grandfather was born in Finland, can I get citizenship?

Hi friends,
My great grandfather was born in Finland and later moved to the US. I sawnonlone that my mother could have applied for citizenship because it says that "those with a Finish parent or grandparent are eligible", however my mother has passed away.

As a great-granddaughter of a Finsh person, am I maybe eligible for citizenship? Thank you so much!
Michelle

You are not. You need to go through the naturalisation process.

Thank you. Meaning that I reside in Finland long enough and can prove sufficient income?

There is not a sufficient income criteria. Check Migri pages.
