Notes

Pennsylvania, Eastern District Naturalization Indexes are available online, click here.

Microfilm of original records housed in the Office of the Naturalization Clerk of the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, Pa.

"The first (1795-1906) and second (1906-26) indexes contain much the same information. On each card is the name of the alien, the country of birth (but not city, town, or province), the date of the petition for naturalization, the number of the petition, and the court (circuit or district) to which the alien applied. In some instances the names of witnesses are shown. The second index (1906-26) also contains the number of the certificate of naturalization."--Introd.

"On each card of the third index (1926-51) is the alien's name, age, address, date of the petition for naturalization, the petition number, and the signature of the petitioner. The index card also shows any name change and the date of loss of citizenship, if applicable. Some of the cards for the period 1926-30 also indicate the alien's declaration of intention number and date as well as the names and ages of the alien's minor children."--Introd.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
