New Niagara Area Microfilm available at the Lewiston Public Library

Niagara County, Naturalization Papers (1830-1906)–as of June 4, 2013–we have the Index for 1836-1906 and the papers from 1830-1851
**We hope to purchase all available Naturalization Papers as funds become available**
These films include thousands of Niagara area immigrants–mostly from England, Ireland, Germany, Canada and some Italy. They usually include name, place and date of birth, date of first entry to America and signature. They also often include handwritten letters explaining further details.

US Recruits for the Polish Army, 1917-1919–includes numerous detailed records for Niagara area (Niagara Falls and Lewiston) Polish immigrants that signed up to fight in the Polish Army.
Notes:
Text in Polish; some English.
Includes indexes.
Many recruits for the Polish Army in France were enlisted during 1917- 1918 in several of the United States with large polish populations. Before each group of records there is an alphabetical index which indicates the page number of the person’s form. Form A, the Application of Volunteer, gives the date, recruiting station, name of the volunteer, their street and city address, civil status, number of children, citizenship status, age, weight, height, when they will be ready to depart, signature, the date they were sent to the Recruiting Center, and name of the officer or recruiting sergeant. The volumes with form C which contain more genealogical information do not appear to have been microfilmed.
