Naturalizations: Researching Philadelphia Records

Sometimes we find our Carbon Ancestor may have not been naturalized in this county. Since sometimes they were naturalized after stepping foot on the boat or migrated here later it's possible they were naturalized in Philadelphia

How to find this out?
Go to the website
Fee for copy of Naturalizations on file at Phila. City Archives (1793 to 1930): $5.00 per set of papers for each name searched.

If the naturalization occurred after 27 Sept 1906, contact the INS through Form G-639 (see the end of that web page for more details). The Immigration and Naturalization Service (I.N.S.) has duplicate records of all naturalizations that occurred after 27 Sept 1906.

If the naturalization took place in a Federal court, naturalization indexes, declarations of intent, and petitions will usually be in the National Archives regional records services facility serving the State in which the Federal court is located. Some of these indexes and records have been microfilmed.
