Naturalization Records


There was no requirement that individuals be naturalized prior to 1906. Unless he wanted to vote or hold office, an immigrant alien could live out his life in the U.S. without ever acquiring citizenship. . . Women were not naturalized through court action, but rather they acquired citizenship "by right of" their husbands or fathers at the time of their naturalizations.
