On Saturday, September 1 at 10:30 a.m., Nancy Lyons will present a program at the Delaware Public Archives on how to use Naturalization papers.  These types of documents can reveal important information about one’s ancestors. Depending on the place and time of naturalization the information contained in them can vary. This workshop will use examples to explore how the naturalization process worked, where to find the records and how to utilize the information they contain.

This is the third in a series of genealogy workshops presented by Nancy Lyons, a highly respected genealogist whose programs have been well received by beginners and advanced genealogists alike. This workshop will include information that will be helpful to those who are searching for information in Delaware and in other states as well.

Nancy Lyons is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the National Genealogical Society.  The founder of the Irish Family History Research Group, Lyons has served as a volunteer at the Mormon Family History Center in Wilmington for 17 years.  She has also been the chair of the Delaware Genealogical Society Educational Committee for the last seven years.

The program is free to the public.  No reservations are required.  For more information, contact Tom Summers (302) 744-5047 or e-mail
