Christina Hunt... who reveals another great source of information.
Wish this was one of my McMahons.

Thank you, Christina.

Subject: [IRL-CLARE] Declaration of Intention - McMAHON

I had a chance to looks at some Declarations of Intention a couple of days ago.
These records were the first step to US Citizenship after 1906 when
naturalization became standardized. These are all for 1915 and are all I have.
They are for Kings County NY which is Brooklyn.
This is the only one out of over 100 that was for Clare.

  1. The "I" referred to was Christina.. it was she who found and looked at this Declaration of Intention. These seem to be a great resource.
