TNA adds digitised naturalisation and denization papers

The National Archives at Kew has added a new collection, Home Office: Denization and Naturalisation Papers and Correspondence, as sourced from its HO1 series, and covering the period from 1801-1871. The collection includes details on some 7000 applicants who applied for naturalisation after the 1844 Naturalisation Act, but also many other papers of those applying for denization, an alternative process.

My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Registers, starts May 15th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
