Re: Working Backwards from Certificate of Naturalization #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

It is *not* correct to say that all naturalizations were performed in federal
court after 1906. Any court of record could perform naturalizations, and
many did. For example, the Supreme Court of New York County (Manhattan) has
a huge collection of massive bound volumes of naturalization records
performed by that court (a county court) - most of them after 1905.

After 1906 the court merely had to use forms specified by the Federal
government and to file a copy of the Petition for Naturalization with the
feds.

After 1906, all naturalizations were in the federal district court. You
need to find the archives of the district court in Albany (nearest NARA
branch -- either Pittsfield or Varick St. in Manhattan, I would assume)and
ask them for the naturalization petition. In the petition file, there will
also be a certificate showing the ship on which he arrived. Many NARA
branches have the ship manifests, whcih will show, among other things,
nearest relative left behind in the old country. Both of these documents
will be interesting to you!!

Dear Doug,

Would also like to add another comment - after 1906 not all naturalizations
Were done in US Federal Court. Those that were are at NARA in Manhattan,
But many people naturalized in NY State Court in Manhattan and these records
Are indexed at a fee based online database and also available at the Municipal
Archives Building 7th Floor, Division of Old Records. They not only have the
actual Copies of the petitions in large books, but you can make a copy of the
Petition >from microfilm while you are there.

I have in hane a copy of my Grandfather's "Certificate of
Naturalization".
I am attempting to find his Mother's maiden name, but it is not on
this document. I believe that the actual filing certificate and
associated paperwork would have this. Is this correct?
There is a certificate number, a Petition number, and volume number on
the document. It was issued Albany, Albany County, NY, in 1920.
What is easiet route to get the filing paperwork asssociated with
this?
If I am asking a "basic" question, please indulge me. I am still new
to this.

"The Last Days of Buczacz" UCLA Lecture #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

There is a lecture that may be of interest to Galitzianers, or students of
the Holocaust, taking place in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 20th at
UCLA's Faculty Center at 7:30PM.

“The Last Days of Buczacz: Judicial Perspectives on the Destruction of a
Multiethnic Galician Town”

Speaker: Omer Bartov, The John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of
European History at Brown University

Event Description:

This lecture will discuss the fate of the Galician town of Buczacz, now
located in Western Ukraine, during the Holocaust, as reflected in
testimonies given during trials that took place in the federal Republic of
Germany in the late 1950s and 1960s. The population of Buczacz was made up
of Jews, Poles, and Ukrainians; the interrelationship between these groups
is the main focus of Bartov’s current project on Buczacz as a representative
town in the eastern European borderlands. This lecture will be concerned
primarily with the manner in which postwar German courtrooms reconstructed
the events of the Holocaust, how they defined the role, motivation, and
relative guilt of the perpetrators, to what extent and for what reasons they
trusted Jewish witnesses, and by which means they recreated the
sociopolitical context in which such local cases of genocide occurred during
World War II.

This event is the “1939” Club Distinguished Lecture in Holocaust Studies,
cosponsored by the UCLA Center for European and Eurasian Studies.

Lectures are open to the public at no charge, but ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS
REQUIRED.

To RSVP please email cjs@humnet.ucla.edu or call the RSVP line at (310)
267-5327.
Please note that seating is limited and will be available on a first-come,
first served basis. UCLA parking passes cost $8.

The UCLA Center for Jewish Studies sponsors lectures of interest to Jewish
genealogists throughout the year. For more info visit their website:
