NOTES FROM IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION RECORDS 1802 - 1859

Onondaga County, Syracuse, New York

Compiled from records extracted from microfilmed records, Onondaga County Court House by Jean D. Worden, 1978 entitled “Immigration and Naturalization Records 1802-1859.”  This is a partial list confined to those cases where more extensive information was obtained from immigrants.  Additional data is available in most cases.  N.Y. or N.Y.S. is New York State where Onondaga County is located.

Worden notes: “The early years were filed only by year, the later ones were filed by year and the first letter of the last name, with several misplaced. Many of the names were very hard to read, almost indecipherable so I had to rely on the clerks writing on the outside of the paper...PLEASE check all possible spellings for the person you are searching. I have tried to group alike names together but because the clerks also had a problem with the names, there are sure to be some not where they belong....Some of the Declaration of Intentions were filed in another County and if these were included, I also included this information.”
