Naturalizations were primarily recorded in local superior, district, or city court minutes in Georgia. The records include aliens' declarations, registers of citizenship, petitions, minors' papers, affidavits, and court orders. Most of these documents are preserved on microfilm at the Georgia Department of Archives and History. The Family History Library has copies of a few of these records.

Pre-1906 Records

  • To locate naturalization records in Georgia at the Family History Library:
Georgia Naturalizations
GEORGIA, [Name of County] - NATURALIZATION AND CITIZENSHIP
  • Federal court naturalizations are discussed in Marion Hemperley, "Federal Naturalization Oaths: Savannah Georgia, 1790-1860," in the Georgia Historical Quarterly, Volume 51, number 4 (1967): pp. 454-87. FHL book 975.8 B2g v. 51

Post-1906 Records

In 1906 the Immigration and Naturalization Service (now United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) was created, forms were standardized and duplicate records created by the court were sent to the INS.
