Re: Fairfield County Naturalization Records

In Reply to: Fairfield County Naturalization Records by Geoff Hunter of 973

The soundex index for CT naturalizations until 1906 are available on microfilm through the FHC (CT records for the 'Index to New England Naturalization Petitions: 1791-1906). It will tell you if, when, and where they were naturalized. From there you just have to find the actual records. Goto and goto the FHL catalogue, do a search for CT and then choose naturalization & citizenship-indexes. Then you just need to know the soundex code. The FHC also has some naturalization records for the circuit & district courts. Unfortunately, they don't have the records for New Haven's Superior Court, I have to ask NARA - Waltham branch for the records I need.

Don't forget to get all the paperwork. The final naturalization papers & certificate doesn't have as much info as the Declaration of Intention (1st papers) & Petition for Naturalization. Personally, I'm hoping it will help with my Irish side, can't find parents names or where in Ireland they came from. I was told the naturalization records were sketchy & didn't require a lot of info, but I am hoping.
