Bryan Mulcahy: Immigration/Naturalization & Ships Passenger Lists  (General Meeting)
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Selby Public Library, 1331 First Street, Geldbart Auditorium, Main Floor, Sarasota, 34236
Immigration records fall into a number of categories.  The most popular involve Ship Passenger Arrival Records.  Both categories often provide important genealogical information for tracing our immigrant ancestors.  The amount of information varies by time period.  These records can help us identify critical personal pieces of information that will be necessary to trace them upon entry into the United States or Canada.  This type of information will play an important role as the immigrant begins the process of gaining citizenship.  Naturalization records in the United States were formally established in 1790.  The law gave authority to common law courts of record in any state to confer citizenship to aliens.  Over time this law has been amended to set up more specific procedures. Our seminar will touch on the importance of these records and their relationship to the three steps in the Naturalization process.
