Brothers-in-law Naturalize

These are the Soundex index cards for the naturalizations for Joseph Watson and Thomas Frame who naturalized in Chicago in 1900 and 1873.

The witness on Watson's card is Thomas Frank living at 2543 118th Street. Thomas Frame has Thomas Francis listed as a witness without an address.

There is the possibility that the "Thomas Frank" on the Watson naturalization is actually Thomas Frame--the address makes me wonder.

We're getting copies of the actual naturalizations to see if the names of the witnesses can be interpreted differently. Even if the Thomas Frank on the Watson naturalization is Thomas Frame, I still have to see if I can determine who the Thomas Francis is on the Frame naturalization. We'll have an update after the naturalizations have been received.
