Application for Naturalization #general

Sarina Roffe

I am looking for the Application for Naturalization for my grandmother and her ship record. She came into the US on Ellis Island in 1908 but I cannot find the record. I found an index for her naturalization in 1952. I also cannot find her marriage record.


I have tried all the usual sources – Ancestry, Fold3, Ellis Island, JDC Archives, My Heritage, Family Search – nothing. I also tried variant spellings – Shalo, Shallow, Shacalo, F for the first name, Farida ( the Arabic) – She came from Aleppo Syria.


Yet I find everything for my grandfather Joseph Nessim Missry.


Frieda came in as Frieda Shaalo in 1908. Married about June 1909 to Joseph Nessim Missry.

They show up as boarders in the 1910 Census and in different homes in every census after that.


Alien Registration Number is 5718566

Petition: 488840

Roll 96 Enter

There is a number on the top of the card also 6986864.

She was naturalized on 6/3/1952 under her married name Frieda Missry.


Any ideas??
