Dear fellow researchers
I hope that all of your wishes come true and bless each of you for all of
your help this past year. I look forward to the coming year and more
We will have a very cold, white Christmas in western Nebraska. Let yours
be Merry and Bright.
Merry Chrismas and a very Happy New Year to each
Sorry to be so-o-o long in getting back to you! I didn't mean to take so
long, but there just seem to be so much going on every day of late, I
sometimes don't get to check my mail, let alone read it.
The estates are about where they were. No one wants to do a
thing...waiting for me to get it done, I guess. (There are four of us and one
brother had to have by-pass after a heart attack in the middle of it all...)
Anyway, I hope someone gave you the information you needed. I am not the
best source of imformation as I haven't been at it long myself. But I think
you need to contact the National Archives for forms, first. As I understand
it, you then send the completed form in, they will let you know what they
have, if anything,and what it will cost.
There were three steps to naturalization; a statement of intent, a
petition to become naturalized, and the actual naturalization. If I remember
correctly, it is the petition that provides the most information.
You would need form 80 for the military records.
You can order the forms over the internet. I hope this is the correct
I think there is something about the military records, too. I think
there are like two parts, and one has more information than the other. I
tried to find it in my notes, but I couldn't seem to.
The address I have for snail mail is:
National Archives at College Park
8601 Adelphi Road
College Park, MD 20740-6001
This is the address on the envelope that they sent me militery and
passenger lists forms in, so I assume it is where one would write.
Sorry to have taken so long. I hope someone else sent you the
information so I wasn't holding you up! If I can help further, let me know.
I am not far from Urbana and Center Point. Walker isn't *too* far. either.
