The United States is a nation of immigrants. Many of those immigrants decided to give up allegiance to their mother country and become a United States citizen by going through the naturalization process.
At a minimum, naturalization records give the name of the alien and the name of the country where he held his former citizenship. They may provide information about the date and place of birth of an immigrant ancestor and his date and port of arrival in the United States. They may provide other personal and genealogical information.
Finding an ancestor’s naturalization records is a daunting task. Attend this workshop to learn how to find them. There will be time after lunch to ask questions and learn about the resources available at the GFO library.
