Over the weekend we rolled one new database and several fixes to existing databases:
Selected U.S. Naturalization Records – Original Documents, 1790-1974
In an effort to get these records out to you sooner rather than later, we have released the images with a light index including name, state, record type, court type, court, court location, naturalization number, roll description and archive series. To capture the remaining rich information (birth date and place, country of origin, parents, occupation, residence, etc.), these records will soon be released to the World Archives Project.
This release includes the states of New York, Pennsylvania and California. Soon to be added to this database are the states of South Carolina, Louisiana, Colorado, Montana, Washington, Oregon, Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts and Maine.
Once World Archives Project indexing is complete, these records will be merged together with the other completed originals (U.S. Naturalization Records – Original Documents)
U.S. World War II Army Enlistment Records, 1938-1946
Errors with the occupation and state codes have been fixed.
Stay tuned for the next U.S. Content Update. Some really good stuff is on the way for February!
