This Index to St. Louis naturalization records covers selected record created between 26 Sept. 1853 and 26 Sept. 1906 and is based on the following sources:

  • Declarations of Intention, 2 April 1890 - 26 September 1906, U.S. District Court - Eastern Division, Eastern Judicial District of Missouri, St. Louis Naturalization Records Microfilm, Roll 77, Item 5
     
  • Declarations of Intention, 26 Sept 1853 - 26 July 1904, U.S. Circuit Court - Eastern Division, Eastern Judicial District of Missouri, St. Louis Naturalization Records Microfilm, Roll 87, Item 1.

    Note: this volume included only 162 declarations, even though it covers a period of almost fifty years. The volume number was not microfilmed with the records, and further checking does not clearly indicate which volume it is. Because the volume number is absent, both the film and item numbers are listed to direct the researcher to the correct microfilmed records.
     
  • Declarations of Intention and Petitions, 1878 - 1906, Circuit Court, St. Louis County, Missouri, St. Louis Naturalization Records Microfilm, Roll 18

Entries are listed alphabetically by surname, then given name. On Declarations of Intention, the applicant signed the form or used his mark. An asterisk (*) denotes name taken from signature. Any notes pertaining to date and port of arrival are included.

Indexes to St. Louis naturalization records prior to 27 Sept. 1906 are also available on the St. Louis Genealogical Society and Missouri State Archives websites.
