==What Do I Do Next?==
 When you have located your ancestor’s naturalization record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. === I Found Who the Person I was Was Looking forFor, What Now? ===
*Learn an immigrant’s place of origin
*Confirm their date of arrival
*Learn foreign and “Americanized” names
*Find records in his or her country of origin such as emigrations, port records, or ship’s manifests.*Look for the Declaration of Intent soon after the immigrant arrived, and then look for the Naturalization Petition five years later, when the residency requirement would have been met. Look for naturalization records in federal courts and then in state, county, or city courts. *An individual may have filed the first and final papers in different courts and sometimes in a different state if the person moved. Immigrants who were younger than 18 when they arrived did not need to file a Declaration of Intent as part of the process. *If your ancestor had a common name, be sure to look at all the entries for a name before you decide which is correct. *Continue to search the naturalization records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who may have naturalized in the same area or nearby. *The witnesses named on naturalization records may have been older relatives of the person in the naturalization process. Search for their naturalizations. *You may want to obtain the naturalization records of every person who shares your ancestor’s surname if they lived in the same county or nearby. You may not know how or if they are related, but the information could lead you to more information about your own ancestors. === I Can't Find Who the Person I'm Looking forFor, What Now? ===*Check for variant spellings of the names *Look for an index.
