Christine K. Schaefer has a new book out Guide to Naturalization Records of
the United States. Has each state and then counties broken down to what is
available. I suggest that this be a source of trying to answer questions of
what is what.
Also on April 13 Ken provided us with a rundown on what the LDS/FHC had on
each country. This was complied by J. Caryle Parker. I didn't archive that
email but perhaps someone did and can re-run it for everyone.
In Schaefer's book she even gives the recent FHC film number to make it so
Like I am interested in Calaveras Cty and it says"no records have been
filmed. The originals are at the Calaveras County Courthouse in Calaveras."
Well, I know that Lorranye Kennedy is the source to get information on these
records even if it takes several months.
On San Joaquin Cty,it is also the same story no record filmed and at the
courthouse. So this eliminates alot of unnecessary looking.
For San Francisco County, San Francisco Coiunty Clerk. Restoration of
naturalization record,judgment book, aliens 1870-1942 and index
San Francisco Cty Department of Elections. Naturalization data of all persons
registering to vote in SF 1906-23(#0002641) The original records of both of
the above are at the City Archives at the San Francisco Public Library in
Anyway, there is a new book out there that can anxwer alot of questions for
those researchers getting to that level.And though I haven't checked the
NORCAL website recently, it might be helpful if the Parker's information was
incorporated into it.
Hope this adds something to your day.
