Genners -

Does anyone know anything about Alien Registration Cards and how to obtain
them? After a lot of research and failures trying to obtain my great-
grandfather's naturalization papers, I am beginning to wonder if he was
never naturalized. I thought maybe it was a law that you had to be
naturalized, but others have told me about ancestors who merely kept
filing these alien registration cards and stayed in the USA for 50, 60,
70 years.

My great-grandfather immigrated >from Russia in the late 1880s, but married
a woman who was a U.S. citizen - - would that provide him with legal
shelter? His 1900 and 1910 census listing have him as alien. His 1920
census listing does say "Pa" for papers filed - - but I have not found
them.

If anyone know how to track down these old Alien Registration Cards, let
me know. Thanks!
