V. 2 #8: NaturalizationRecords.com updates!
I've added the following databases and records to
http://NaturalizationRecords.com/ this week:
Naturalization Indexes for surname GILLESPIE 1900-1924 New
Index to Naturalization Records (various kinds - Certificates of
Arrival, Petitions, Declarations, etc) for the District of
Minnesota, 1943 - 1978.
This is an index I created for the online NARA records (337
individuals), which are rather tricky to search.
My index allows researchers to quickly find a name of interest. Each
individual name shows what type of record is online and the date of
the record(s). Instructions are provided so that you can easily view
digitized images for detailed information. I have also begun
extracting details from the images for arrival dates and ship names.
Here's an example from the index I created: Petition for
Naturalization for Grete Askegaard. 06/27/1955 [arrived NY
21 Sept. 1950 on SS Oslofjord] Again, more detail is available
and can be easily accessed by following directions onsite.
Index to Naturalization Petitions for the Eastern(Savannah)
Division of the Southern District of Georgia
This is another index I created for online NARA digitized images. The
earliest is dated 1783, the latest 1858. I have extracted arrival
dates and ship names for all individuals (where available) and these
are included with the index. Instructions are provided so that
researchers can easily view the online images at NARA.
Here's an example of what you might find in the index I created: The
naturalization declaration and petition of Richard D. Fox. ,
12/01/1843 [2 images: Sailed from London England arrived New York 21
April 1837 on Ship Gladiator. Living Chatham Co. GA] Using the
online instructions to view those 2 images noted will provide more
