NATURALIZATION RECORDS IN THE USA & CANADA
 
Naturalization is the process by which an alien from one country becomes a citizen of another country. The naturalization process did not have to happen in one court, or in one lcation. It was not mandatory and not all aliens became citizens, and not all completed the process once they started it

Naturalization Records are very important to your genealogical research but are often overlooked.

What You Can Find on an American Naturalization Record

What You Can Find on a Naturalization RecordHow much information is found on a naturalization record depends on what year the naturalization occured.

Naturalization records can help you find the date of immigration, ship's passenger list, port of arrival, and the place of birth for your ancestor. Some naturalization records include occupations, names and ages of minor children and more

We want to know where our ancestors came from. We want to know when they arrived in North America and when they became citizens. Naturalization and immigration records are the answer. Sometimes naturalization records for an ancestor are the only way to discover the family origins.
