How do I find my ancestors naturalization papers?

I am looking for my Great Uncle’s naturalization papers. He was naturalized either before, during or after his service in WWI. He came with his mother (his father was already here) from Sicily, to Rochester, NY.  Thank you!

  • Hi Susannah,

    I looked up Sicilian/Italian girls names and the translations. I think I was originally wrong about the missing letters of my Great Grandmother's name.

    Here are the translations:

    Giacomina = Jacqueline

    Giacoma = Jackie

    My Grandmother always referred to her mother's name as Jacqueline.  Which of course doesn't mean it was the correct translation.  It's awfully close!

    Now, if I can only find out what town she was from!

    Many, many thanks,
