Scope and Content
This series contains stubs for certificates of citizenship issued by the court to newly naturalized citizens.

The essential facts included both filing information and personal history data: certificate number; name; age; declaration of intention filing data; petition for citizenship filing data; name, age, and residence of wife; names, ages, and residences of minor children; date of order admitting to citizenship with volume and page recorded; and signature of holder.
