Eastern PA Naturalization #usa

Eric Ellman


I cannot find my wife's grandfather's naturalization record by searching on his name or a Soundex. Yet, I do have what I am pretty sure is the date of naturalization and the document number.  Is there a way to search on naturalizations from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania for No. 320893, Sept. 24, 1912, Abram or Abraham SNADER, arriving NYC 1902, approx. 1 year old at arriva.

Naturalization for Abraham Snador. Look at your timeline. If Abraham arrived in 1902 at age 1 year then in 1912 he would only be 11 y.o. and would not be naturalizing on his own. He could be naturalized as dependent of his father at that time. You may have the wrong person.

The number you have is  the number attached to his certificate of naturalization. That is not something that one can ordinarily use to look up a record. However, FamilySearch has records from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on their website (free with registration). I searched on the name Snader and found him as David Snader, naturalized on 24 September 1912. The way I can tell it is the record you cited is that on the last page (his oath) it shows the number of his certificate: 320893.

I'd look for a parent's naturalization.  At age 14 in 1912, he was probably included in his father's naturalization.
