Re: Oath of Allegiance #canada

Hi Jeri,

yes, the Oath of Allegiance was an actual document. You can order it,
along with the entire naturalization file, from the Canadian
government. There's a website that explains how to order it here:

Basically, you need to mail a request for the naturalization record
(with the name and the record number and series) to Immigration,
Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), along with a check for $5
(Canadian) and proof the person's been dead for at least 20 years. You
need the proof of death regardless of when the person was born, and it
can include a copy of a death certificate, an obituary, or a picture
of a tombstone. You also need to be a Canadian citizen to order the
records, but if you aren't one you can try and find someone to order
it for you.

From my own experience, it can include a significant amount of records
with significant amount of information: when/where the person was
born, how they immigrated to Canada, addresses, occupation, spouse and
children, and other stuff. However, you should be aware they will
withhold pages with potentially personal information on other people
who could still be alive (even when it's obvious they probably
aren't), namely spouses. If possible, I'd recommend including the
proof of death for the spouse as well.

I hope this was able to help, and good luck!

Hi Cousins,

My 1st cousin twice removed, Samuel Friedman, lived in Montreal, Quebec,
Canada. He took the Oath of Allegiance on June 21, 1923. Number and
Series is 24890 A. The date for certificate of naturalization is blank,
so I'm assuming he never naturalized. What I'd like to know is this:

1. Was the Oath of Allegiance an actual document?

2. What information does it contain besides the person's name?

Thank you,
Jeri Friedman
