Naturalizations: 1804-1923

Naturalization refers to the process through which foreign-born residents are granted citizenship privileges and responsibilities. As part of this process, records are created to document the journey of immigrants seeking to become citizens. These records are typically found in various types of record books. The specific location of the record you are searching for will depend on the date and place of the event, such as the Declaration of Intent or the Petition for Naturalization.
