USA-Wide Naturalization Records

Date: 09 Apr 2003
Transcriber: Pat Connors
Connors Genealogy
Source: LDS film#1304660, Naturalization Declarations 1853-1859, Rensselaer Co NY Justice Court

The following database is published on with Pat Connor's permission. Pat notes: This database is for those born in Ireland. A typical record has the following information: name, age, county in Ireland of birth, city where person left from, date of arrival in USA, place of residence, date of declaration. Residences include Rensselaer, Albany, Washington and Saratoga Counties, plus I have found some from VT and MA.

It should be noted that all the records are 150 years old and hand written and at time very difficult to read. Those names with (?) means I am guessing. While fairly familiar with Troy Irish names I still had to guess on a few. Also, there is a form where the clerk fills in the person's name and many times misspelled the surname. If the person signed their own name, I took their spelling and not the clerk's. But is there was an X, then I took the name the clerk wrote even though it didn't look correct to me. If you think one of these are yours, you should check the film for accuracy.
