FamilySearch Find Of The Day: Naturalization Card of Amelia (Stec) Bogusz

The other day, I was pretty excited to see the addition/update of the FamilySearch database "Ohio, County Naturalization Records, 1800-1977"! I was able to locate the index card for my 2nd-great-grandmother's naturalization papers. I'll be heading to the National Archives sometime next week, after the holidays are over, to retrieve copies of her naturalization papers. I'm kind of excited to see what's listed on them, even though I know everything that they'll state. But you never know!
