THEY BECAME CITIZENS: AN OVERVIEW OF AMERICAN NATURALIZATION RECORDS
January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This lecture presents an overview of United States naturalization records. The first national naturalization law was established in 1790, and therefore this lecture focuses on 19th and 20th century naturalization proceedings. Naturalization procedures and forms during two basic time periods are discussed: from 1790 to September 27, 1906; and from September 27, 1906, forward. Finding aids to naturalization records is provided.
