Alaska Naturalization and CitizenshipEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Residents of Alaska became citizens of the United States when Alaska was purchased in 1867 from Russia.
Naturalization records for those arriving later have been filed in the judicial districts. Records for some of the districts, 1884 to 1959, are at the Alaska State Archives.
Old territorial records of Fairbanks, Juneau, and Nome have been transferred to the superior court.
Family History Library
The Family History Library has not acquired naturalization records for Alaska. The library does have two indexes for naturalization records in Alaska.
Post 1906 Records
For naturalization records after September 1906, contact the National Archives—Alaska Region at http://www.archives.state.ak.us/ or the local office of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
