Hi Judy, it depends on whether they were naturalized before or
The way you find out is check the 1930 census.
After 1906 there is a federal index because after a Sept.
date "While naturalization proceedings could have taken place in any U. S. District Court, or in any court of record, all proceedings were required to be recorded by the clerk of the court and a copy sent to a central office". The URL with
the URL for that office is here:
Before that it's a problem determining which court naturalized them. IF they were naturalized. You would still start with the censuses to get an idea when/if they were naturalized.
There's some few naturalization record indexes here:
You can get more from LDS....as I know from an endless search for my great grandfather in Michigan.
Depending on teh date women may have had derivative
naturalization because the husband was naturalized or a
minor daughter was naturalized when her father was. ALl
depends on the dates as the laws changed rather quickly.
Best of luck,
