Oaths of Allegiance

While working on our naturalization records, I located instruction sent to County Clerk’s by the U.S. Department of Labor on the subject of foreign allegiances.  It addressed some of the territories that had changed hands and how to determine the citizenship of individuals in a contested territory such as Alsace.  Failure to assign the right leader and allegiance to a naturalization form could lead to that form being invalid.  On the back there is a list of foreign leaders dated November 15, 1926.
