This one hour class will delve into the Immigration and Naturali-zation process along with giving the student a more in depth understanding of the process that our ancestors had to go through to become naturalized citizens of the United States of America.
Records that will be discussed include Declarations of Intentions, Petitions, and Certificates of Naturalization, along with the little known Certificate Stubs. While finding your ancestors naturalization paperwork may seem difficult or often impossible. This class should help you to understand the records and how you might not be looking in the right place. The records, when and where they can be found, can be a difficult endeavor for many people; however, we will try to create “a simple guide to a complex subject.”
