The County Clerk maintains naturalization records for the years 1795 through 1952. These records can include the following: a Certificate of Arrival, Declaration of Intention and a Petition. Certification of these records are available for a fee of $10.00, payable to the Queens County Clerk in cash (in-person transactions only), certified check or U.S. postal money orders.

Due to the age and condition of these documents, requests for records searches may only be performed by our staff.
