Card index to approximately 650,000 naturalization petitions that were filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York from 1865 to 1957. The cards are arranged in three groups covering the periods July 1865-September 1906, October 1906-November 1925, and November 1925-December 1957. The cards within each group are arranged alphabetically by the name of the person naturalized. Index cards in the first group include the name of the naturalized individual, the date of naturalization, and the volume and record number of the naturalization petition. These cards may also contain such information as the address, occupation, birth date or age, former nationality, and port and date of arrival of the person naturalized, and the name of the witness to the naturalization. The cards for the second and third groups show the name and the petition and certificate numbers of the person naturalized and generally include the address, age, and date of admission to citizenship.

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 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.
