Another Indexing Project

The Italian Genealogical Group is sponsering another indexing project.  Volunteers are creating a name index for naturalization petitions filed in the United States District Court in Newark, New Jersey.  The district includes not just Essex County, but also Bergen, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Union, Sussex, and parts of Middlesex.  The years of the petitions range from the 1920s through the 1980s.  I am indexing about 1000 cards of last names that start with M.
