Naturalization paperwork
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 18:08 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for naturalization papers for my Great Uncle.  On the census it says he was naturalized in 1912 im assuming in Alberta.  I have gotten my Grandfathers but he became naturalized in 1940 there abouts.  I can't find how to get 1912 naturalization papers.  Any help would be appreciated.

It appears from this link that naturalization papers prior to 1917 have been destroyed but there is also info about how to get what info is available from a card index.

Where did your ancestors originally come from? Prior to 1947, any British citizen did not become "naturalized" as they were already British subjects in Canada.
