The abbreviations used in the table are as follows:

  • DecVol = Volume number in which the Declaration of Intention record can be found.
  • DecPage = Page number on which the Declarations of Intention record can be found.
  • PetVol = Volume number in which the Petition for Naturalization can be found.
  • PetPage = Page number on which the Petition for Naturalization can be found.

You must give the clerk both the volume and page number in order to locate the document you are requesting.


"Year" refers to the date of the filing of the Declaration. In over 90% of the cases, its the actual year. Each volume covers approximately one month of filings and we have recorded the from/to dates. For purposes of this table, only the "from" (year) is shown. So, for the last Declaration volume in each year, there may be some included that were filed in January of the next year.


If the index is missing the year, below is a table that can give you a general idea for the year of Petition:
