(US-Bronx, Queens NYC) Naturalization Records from Bronx and Queens to Become Available Online #Records Access

Jan Meisels Allen



The )US) National Archives gave a three-year grant of $872,000 which will pay for the Bronx and Queens (New York City)  County Clerks offices to upload naturalization record online starting in 2022.   They will be freely accessible on line.


Naturalization records in the Bronx and Queens stretch from the late 1700′s through the 1950′s when clerks offices ceased processing naturalization documents. The responsibility shifted to the federal government.  Thus far most of the requests in Queens are for records from the mid-1800′s through the early 1900′s.

The Bronx naturalizations are available ,,,, just not online at this moment.  The Italian Gen group has a good online index and you can mail order the documents from the Bronx County Clerk.  There's a form to download online.

Also any naturalization after 1906 is duplicated in Washington DC but if you can it is much better, cheaper and faster, to gt them from the local court.

It will be nice to have these records online by 2022, but you do not have to wait to get to them until then.
