The 1920 Census has very important information pertaining to the year a person came to the U.S. and the year they were naturalized. If the person was naturalized from 1906 on, they had a detailed form to fill out. This form asked what village or town they were born in; date and port of departure and arrival; name of ship; town and date wife and children were born in; date and place of marriage. Also included, is a picture of the person at time of citizenship. Two forms were usually required to be filled out. One is a Declaration of Intent to become a citizen. The other one is filled out about five years later for a petition of final citizenship. These forms could be kept at two different courthouses.


There were instances that the foreign-born did not get the question on the census filled out noted as being AL or Aliens: citizenship before 1906


If you have problems finding the records that you are trying to locate, the following may be the reasons why:


PA = Pending naturalization application at the court house.
