Nancy,

Look at the Citizenship columns of the census returns.  They will indicate "Al", meaning alien: the immigrant did not yet file for citizenship; "Pa" meaning papers: the immigrant filed "first papers" (Declaration of Intention); or "Na": naturalized: the immigrant filed their Petition for Naturalization.  Depending on the census, there may also be a date of the naturalization activity.  Then search the naturalization indexes to see if you can locate their papers.  Depending on when they naturalized, there may be information about the date and means of arrival. Many naturalization collections additionally have the Certificate of Arrival, which contains the same arrival info, and usually lists the name that was used on the passenger list.

Regards,
David Oseas
