Naturalization records have generally been filed in the county and district courts of Montana. You can write to the clerk of the court and request a search of indexes to certificates of arrival, petitions, declarations, and final naturalization papers.

The Family History Library has copies of some Montana naturalizations. The National Archives—Pacific Alaska Region (Seattle)has documents for:

  • The four territorial district courts (1868-89). (Indexes on Family History Library film 1490886 items 1-8.)
  • U.S. district courts in Butte (1894-1929), Great Falls (1924-26), Helena (1892-1929). (Family History Library films 1492066 items 1-4 and 1490886 items 11-27.)
  • The U.S. Circuit Court (1891-98). (Family History Library films 1490886 items 9-10 and 1492068 items 1-20.)

Post-1906 Records

In 1906 the Immigration and Naturalization Service (now United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) was created, forms were standardized and duplicate copies of naturalization records were sent to the INS. You can access these records through the Genealogy Program at www.uscis.gov.
