Need help in locating a New York City Naturalization record #usa #records

Jay Gilbert

I have been trying but have been unable to locate a New York City Naturalization record for Morris Malvin, and would welcome assistance.  In the 1910 US Federal Census, he is listed by that name.  He is 26 years old (b. 1884 in Russia, I believe in Warsaw), married, with two young children, living at Jamaica and Hempstead Turnpikes, Queens, NY.  His arrival year is listed as 1906 (I haven’t been able to find an arrival record either), and his citizenship status is “Alien”.  On his WWI Draft Registration Card, dated September 1918, and in the 1920 US Federal Census he is listed as “Naturalized”.  At those times he is 34 and 36 years old, and is living at Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway, Queens, NY.  I have searched (as best I am able) on Ancestry, and have searched both the New York Southern and Eastern District Court documents available on Family Search, without finding his Naturalization record.  Family lore says that his name in Europe may have been Malawanczyk, and I have searched as well on that name.  I would be grateful for any suggestions or recommendations.

Thank you.
