Michigan Collection of Naturalization 1837-1993

The FamilySearch.org has added and updated a large collection of the naturalization records for Michigan covering 1837-1993. Many of your ancestors may have been living in Michigan to submit their naturalization documents.

People settled in Michigan and came from many locations. Especially from Canada since it was so close to the Michigan border.

A good deal of information is found on these naturalization documents, including their signature. The best is in the later naturalization records – from the 1930s on – where a photo of the person is included. Also, check the names on the back (second page) who signed saying they knew the person in good standing for many years. That individual could be an employer, a neighbor, a good friend or a relative.

The collection of Michigan nationalizations covers from 1837 to 1993, so a long range of time is covered. There are nearly 151,000 records. All free on FamilySearch.org.
