This category is for pages and categories about the process of granting citizenship privileges and responsibilities to foreign-born residents of the United States. This may include, but is not limited to, report and registry, court minutes, aliens' register, declarations of intent, first papers, petitions (for citizenship), second papers, certificates (of citizenship), final papers, certificates of arrival, oaths of allegiance, court orders, or other naturalization records.

This category does not include census, passenger arrival lists, homestead landpassport records, or voter lists which may have had incidental information about citizenship added as a minor element of those records.
