Re: Naturalization Index / Search #usa #records


Hi David, 

The naturalization index card you have uploaded  corresponds to the naturalization petition. For the declaration  document you will find the corresponding card attached (found on the Cook County Clerk of court site). 

I do not know if these two documents are  available online (at least I couldn't find them on or but if you are interested in his immigration documents, here are some suggestions based on the information written in the index card, 

Departure from Hamburg

Arrival to NYC

Some observations, 
His birth year is given as 1884 ; his birth place in the US passenger list is given as Krakow although in both  Hamburg and US lists his last residence appears to be a different place. According to the German passenger list he was living in Chabanoka

Regarding your question about possible spellings of the Pnieczek name, you can do a research using "soundex"  or "sounds like" options. Both ancestry and familysearch give results with various spellings. I managed to find many records for Stan Pnieczek this way (WWI & WWii draft cards, 1920,1930,1940 censuses, birth /death records for his children etc.). 

I hope that all these will be helpful  to you in some way.
