Lecture no. 7 from the course: Discovering Your Roots: An Introduction to Genealogy
Taught by Professor John Phillip Colletta | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
Did your immigrant ancestors become U.S. citizens? Did they procrastinate, or not naturalize at all? Dr. Colletta reveals how naturalization records can answer these and other biographical questions. You’ll focus on adapting your research to three major naturalization periods: prior to 1790, 1790 to 1906, and 1906 to today.
