Naturalization Records #usa #records


I am trying to find the naturalization petition and records for my grandfather Max Glasser.  From Ancestry, I have found an index card (#4982428)  indicating that it is petition number 291649 from the US District Court at Brooklyn (Eastern District of NY).  It was issued January 23, 1941.  I did find find the record at Family Search.

Thanks very much.

I've received copies of Naturalization papers by directly contacting the court that issued the numbers. Cook County, Chicago, IL had an online form and the papers arrived in 2 weeks. Staten Island, NY, took several months and multiple phone calls.

Mark - these records are indeed available on Family Search, just not indexed and under records.   If you search in catalog, then under place type in "United States" and hit enter, scroll down to the 4th page where you will find:  United States - Naturalization and citizenship ( 73 )       -- you will find:

Author: United States. District Court (New York : Eastern District); United States. National Archives and Records Administration. Northeast Region

hit enter and armed with your petition number from the index you will be able to locate your record using trial and error looking at the petition numbers 

This is also available for US Southern District Court records

Many Brooklyn naturalization papers are online at and possibly at  BTW if you are not an Ancestry subscriber, and your local library has a library edition subscription, you can access it at home via your library card through the end of March.

Thanks to all for their help.  From these suggestions and others that were sent privately, I have gotten his papers and learned a lot that I hadn't known before. 

With much appreciation for the efforts of the Jewish Gen community,
