Naturalization records and Genealogical Research

Presented by Bryan Mulcahy, M.L.S.
Reference Librarian
 | Ft. Myers Regional Library

Naturalization records pertain to foreign born aliens who went through the process of becoming American citizens.  The process grew out of an Act of Congress in 1790 and has undergone numerous revisions over time.  Prior to January 1906, the process was not standardized.  While the federal government mandate took over control of the naturalization process in 1820, enforcement was often in the hands of state authorities.  This resulted in cases where researchers find multiple types of paper trails and procedures in different jurisdictions.  Bryan will cover the legal steps necessary and the records generated through the process.
