Naturalization Index Errors? #general


Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

I have been attempting to obtain the declaration of intent of a Louis
GREENBERGER. In both paid genealogy services and in the indexes to
Naturalization records available >from the FHC, it is indicated that Louis
Greenberger was naturalized on 12 Aug 1913 by the NY Supreme Court, and his
declaration of intent can be found on Vol. 63, page 145.

The problem is that Vol. 63 covers 1911, not 1913. I would guess that August
of 1913 would fall around vols. 130-145. I have been told by the
fee-for-service company that they just copy the records >from the municipal
archives, and I would have to go back to the originator of the records for a
correction. That is all well and fine, but doesn't help me find Uncle Louis.
:-) The FHC records are microfilms of the records at the municipal archives.

I considered that vol. 63 was a typo and should have been 83 or 163, but
those don't appear to work either.

Does anyone have any idea how I could determine the vol. and page for Louis,
other than wading through 10 or 12 volumes of declarations that fall in the
July to Sept 1911 period?

Thanks.
