Task

Wiki Project Pennsylvania Tasks - Naturalization FHLC

Description

List naturalization records from the FHLC onto the county page.

Instructions

1. To locate naturalization records in the FHLC, do a place name search in the FHLC by typing in your county. If you need more instructions on how to search the FHLC, go to Family History Library Catalog Place-name Search.

2. Once you have the correct county, look under the topic of Naturalization Records. Review the entries for any original probate records. Do not put in book indexes or abstracts. We will link to these in another task. If there are no original naturalization records in the FHLC, you have completed the task.

3. After "Online Naturalization Indexes and Records", add the following:

'''Original Naturalization Records on Microfilm'''<br>

4. From the FHLC, add each original naturalization record under the new heading you created in #3. Please remember the following as you create the entry:

i. Bullet each entry you make.
ii. Put the dates the records cover at the beginning of the entry after the bullet. Then list the title of the collection.
iii. The date should be bolded. 
iv. You can put the index at the end of the entry (see example).
v. Put the sources in chronological order.
vi. Use the FHLC template to list the film number.
