Bertinus Becomes a Citizen

Looking through copies of some items cousin Carol shared with me that had been in her father Bennie’s possession, I realized I could post a few more photos and other documents as well. Since I have just blogged about the Estenson trip to America, this document is especially appropriate: Bertinus’s naturalization papers.

Notice that the date is October 29, 1877, just two and one-half years after Bertinus’s arrival in America at the Port of Philadelphia in May 1875. He wasted no time declaring his new loyalties to the United States!
