USA-Wide Naturalization Records
World War I Alien Registrations in the United States
All states were required to complete alien registrations but not all records were kept.
Alien Registration Records 1940-1944
The Alien Registration Program began 1 July 1940. Every alien resident of the USA had to register at a local post office. Aliens entering USA had to register when they applied for admission. All aliens over 14 fell under this law. Forms filled out by aliens were sent to INS, along with a registration number. They are known as "AR-2" files
Registrations from 1940-1944 are on microfilm at INS. To obtain copies of AR-2 Files, you must submit a request identifying the immigrant by name, date of birth, and place of birth to the INS Freedom of Information Act program.
