    Declaration of Intent and Petition for Naturalization

    joan stachnik Adventurer

      Hi, I'm trying to find a copy of my great uncle's naturalization papers. He submitted a declaration of intent on 6/20/1917 (per the Cook County Illinois DI database) and was naturalized on Dec 4, 1924 (per his wife's naturalization papers). My question is what date might he have submitted his petition for naturalization, or more specifically what would be the date of those papers if he was naturalized Dec 1924? Would the petition been the same date? I am asking because one of the ancesty-type databases has Petitions for Naturalization for Northern Illinois digitalized, but they are not indexed by name. So it appears that I would need to search by date.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. thank you, joan
