Re: US Naturalization questions (more or less general) #general #records


If you find an individual on a Detained Persons list, but not on the manifest itself, you can use the list to locate them.  The list has a column after the name that indicates where they are located on the manifest.  There is usually a page number or letter and then the line.  In the case of damaged manifests, sometimes this list is the only indication that the person was actually on that ship.

Another resource for you to look at for records is the CIty of Baltimore Archives.  They have vital records and City Directories for Baltimore.  I would suggest you contact the Archivist there to inquire about the location, if any, for Baltimore naturalization records that are not on line.  In Philadelphia, the City Archives have the Naturalization Documents from the Quarter Session court, and these are not online anywhere.
