The Portable Genealogist: U.S. Naturalization

ne30New England Historic Genealogical Society has joined with many others in creating a new series of 2 to 4 page laminated guides. The NEHGS series is called The Portable Genealogist. In the third installment of this new series to be reviewed here, we will look at The Portable Genealogist: U.S. Naturalization, by Rhonda R. McClure, Genealogist at NEHGS.

What you will find in this new guide:

Page 1 opens with a brief introduction followed by a chart indicating naturalization information gathered in the federal census, by census year. The bottom of the page begins looking at naturalization records and information, beginning with colonial resources.

Page 2 continues colonial resources with the Oath of Allegiance followed by examining Naturalization Records, 1790-1905; which, includes a chart covering eligibility and the process for the years 1790, 1795, 1798, and 1802.

Page 3 continues looking at Records through 1905, with example records, then continues with Naturalization Records, Post 1906.

Page 4 examines Women and Naturalization with another chart and sample records, then finishes with some Recommended Resources.

Contents also include a few tips set to stand out in their own colored boxes. This is a two-color guide, four-page laminated guide, pre-punched three hole for easy insertion into a binder.
