The Southern California Genealogical Society has announced the publication of a new three-volume series: The Naturalization Index of the Superior Court for Los Angeles County, California 1852-1915.
Quoting from the society's announcement:
The index includes mention of every naturalization transaction (Declaration of Intent, Final Papers, denials, etc.) that occurred in Los Angeles County Superior court. The index includes more than 40,000 entries, with close to 27,000 unique names and more than 350 countries or combinations of countries or origin, i.e., Hungary-Canada-Great Britain. The three volumes are available for purchase separately or as a three-volume set. The publication can be ordered through the SCGS website shopping cart at www.scgsgenealogy.com/catalog.
This series is the first tangible output of SCGS's 1890 Project. The goal of the 1890 Project is to account for all of the individuals -- fathers, mothers, children, lodgers, residents and visitors -- who would have been enumerated on the 1890 U.S. census for Los Angeles County. This project is a legacy for all future genealogists and historians of the Los Angeles area. Read more about the 1890 Project at http://www.scgsgenealogy.com/1890project.htm
