Does anyone know where to find Petitions for Naturalizations filed before 1881 in Waukesha County? I am loking for the petition of MATHIAS BARTHEN/BARTON/BARTEN. I have his Declaration of Intent. I am trying to find his birthplace in Prussia or his birth month. I know that he was born in 1816 in Prussia.

All naturalization petitions and final papers are housed at the Waukesha County Museum.

Thank you for your answer but I had already contacted them. Unfortunately they only have Petitions from 1906 on. The one that I need is much earlier, abt. 1858.

Waukesha County was formed in 1846 from a portion of Milwaukee County. Is it possible the person you are researching might have petitioned in Milwaukee?

"Waukesha County naturalization records, 1847-1955, are located in the UWM Golda Meir Library's Archives Department." per http://www4.uwm.edu/libraries/arch/genie/researchaids/natura...

FamilySearch also has some naturalization information...you'll have to browse through the records as they are not searchable yet. http://bit.ly/TRlBHy
