Naturalization Before 1906

The California State Archives has records of Sacramento County for the years 1850 to 1903. Most naturalization records for the period before 1906 have been microfilmed by the LDS church. Many have also been indexed or transcribed for publication, and as such, are available at local and regional libraries.

Naturalization After 1906

BCIS naturalization certificate files (C-Files) include a duplicate copy of all naturalization records after September 26, 1906. C-Files include all US naturalizations from all States and Territories, and from all courts (Federal, State, and local). C-Files contain a copy of the Declaration of Intention to become a US Citizen (to 1952), Petition for Naturalization, and Certificate of Naturalization. Declarations filed after Sept 27, 1906, were only good for 7 years. If the immigrant did not petition within the 7 years, the declaration expired and the immigrant had to start over again from the beginning. Most C-Files from 1906 to 1956 are on microfilm, with the remainder in paper form, and BCIS has an index to those that have been filmed. They are available with a Freedom of Information/Privacy Act request to BCIS Headquarters in Washington, D.C. For naturalization records after 1956, Freedom of Information requests must be sent to the appropriate BCIS District Office
