Family Tree: A City of Immigrants | Historic Indianapolis | All Things ... | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

The earliest naturalization records in Indiana date to 1807. Throughout the years various county courts handled naturalization proceedings. Even the Indiana Supreme Court naturalized people for a time. The process required foreign born peoples to follow a two-step process. They first had to file a declaration of intent to become naturalized, then file a petition for naturalization. Once their petition was approved, they received a certificate that granted them citizenship. The entire process took several years.

Before 1906, only men were required to file for naturalization. Women were not required to file until 1922. Before this time, they either became citizens automatically when their husbands were naturalized or by marrying a U.S. citizen. Likewise, children were automatically granted citizenship along with their fathers.

Slovenian Girls. Second-generation Slovenian girls in traditional costumes, via the Indiana Historical Society. Before 1906, only men were required to file for naturalization. Women were not required to file until 1922.
Knapco's insight:

With regard to the picture of Slovenian girls: I am afraid they are not in a very traditional dresses. National costumes look differently. Slovenia was at that time in Austria-Hungarian monarchy (until 1918) but traditional dressing code for that time in Slovenia differed by regions and was different in towns and countryside.
Also for a comment I doubt that it is relevant for Slovenian culture: in Slovenia you will not find any orthodox church. Slovenia is mainly with the Roman Catholic Church, only in its part neighboring Hungary is a minority with Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Is it possible that ‘Slovenian’ is confused for ‘Slavic’?

Argentina Research on the FamilySearch Wiki

Argentina Research on the FamilySearch Wiki | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

By Lineagekeeper; Posted on 27 December 2012, Posted in: FamilySearch Wiki, Genealogy, Research.


The FamilySearch Wiki contains dozens of articles to aid in research for Argentina records. The articles covers dozens of topics and include links to a wealth of Argentina record collections on FamilySearch.

Knapco's insight:

Argentina's population and culture were heavily shaped by immigrants from throughout Europe, but most particularly Italy and Spain, which provided the largest percentage of newcomers from 1860 to 1930. After WWII also many Slovenians emigrated to Argentina, therefore the on-line articles and data sources might be of interest to our genealogists.
