Go to the following webpage:

and scroll down the page until you see:
How to Obtain Copies of Naturalization papers

(We have provided a printable form to request Naturalization Records
from the National Archives in NY)
Copies of the naturalization papers can be obtained >from the National
Archives by using the form you can download. The cost of copies via
the mail is $10.00 for each name.

Copies can also be made at the National Archives, 201 Varick Street,
New York, NY 10014 and are much cheaper since you only pay for
photocopying charges.

Does anyone know to whom I would request a copy of a Naturalization
Petition? I have the Microfilm ID # and the Record Group # for the National
Archives and I have the Certificate # and the Petition #. But, I don't know
where to send the request or who I should call?

The petition was filed in 1917 by my grandfather in the Southern District
Court of New York. The NYC Archives web site said that all Naturalization
records are at the National Archives in Washington DC. I searched the
National Archives web site to try to find an address or phone # to request a
copy, but I could not find that information.

Any help would be appreciated.

The NYC Archives (Municipal Archives) is correct, all naturalization records
for naturalizations completed after 1906 are at the National Archives, but
at the Archive branch that serves the region where the naturalization was
performed. ALL Naturalization records are also preserved (to the extent
that preservation has been successful over the years) among the records of
the individual courts where the process was performed.

In this case you know that the petition was filed with the Federal District
Court for the Southern District of New York. their records are at the
National Archives Branch Archive on Varrick Street in Manhattan. Write them
there or go there to see and handle the original records. The name,
certificate number, and Court should be sufficient information to find the
records.

Las Vegas Conference #general

Diane Freilich <dmfjgs@...>
 

Hats off to the LV group who worked so tirelessly
behind the scenes. As I understand it, this was a
very small core group. The conference ran smoothly,
the lectures were, for the most part, informative.
All had a great time. And best of all, no hassle
trying to get to research depositories [there were
none].

Computer room was wonderful and staffed with
knowledgeable people. Resource room also very
helpful. Hospitality room staffed with warm and
friendly people willing to assist with questions.

Were cousin marriages legal in NY in 1909? #general

Israel P
 

An aunt of my mother's married a man who may have been her first cousin,
in 1909 in Manhattan.

I have ordered the marriage record, intending to see the parents' names,
but it occurs to me that if NY did not allow cousin marriages, the
information on the marriage record may be phoney. (There were recent
immigrants >from Russia and may not have had independent birth
documentation.)

Am I worrying for naught?

Ellis Island - Do I Give Up? #general

Jan Groshan <jangro@...>
 

After much searching on [name of commercial company removed], I finally found my
father-in-law on a ship manifest....the Magestic...Departed >from Cherbourg, Port
of Arrival: New York, August 1, 1923. I then went to the Ellis Island database to
see if I could find anything there,using the spelling I had found on the manifest,
but there is nothing. Am I to assume the Port of New York is not necessarily
Ellis Island, or that somehow he and his mother, sister and brother slipped
through without being noticed? Interestingly, I can't find him on the 1930
federal census either, although I'm certain he was in either New York or New
Jersey at the time.
