Maryland Naturalization Records 1906-1930

This database contains records of Maryland declarations of intention, petitions for naturalization, oaths of allegiance, and occasionally supporting documents such as certificates of arrival.  These records can be searched by the immigrant’s birth country, birth year, immigration year, and by his or her name.
