U.S. Naturalization Record - my granddad

U.S. Naturalization Record - my granddad

Posted: 1330360943000
Classification: Query
Surnames: pedersen, pederson

Hope someone can help me.

I've found my granddad in the U.S. Naturalization Record Indexes, 1791-1992 (Indexed in World Archives Project). Index to Naturalization Records of the U.S. District for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Chattanooga

As far as I can make out the index states his name, Valdemar Pedersen (they write Pederson, but it's him) and
"Book 7 - pet. no. 15 vim"
Dec. 7. 1918

How do I go about finding the petitions and/or declarations?

(I've also found him on a passenger list coming from Denmark, and as drafted in WWI 1918 and also a passport request.)

I take it that you did not follow the link at the bottom of's purported "record" page. If you had, you would have found the following:

For copies of the original files write to:

National Archives – Southeastern Region (Atlanta)
4712 Southpark Blvd.
Ellenwood, GA 30294
Phone: (404) 736-2820

BTW, the reference is Petition No. 1521M

I did follow the link, but wasn't sure if there was anywhere here on to search further first.

Thanks for your help

A caution: You probably found a record of Valdemar registering for the draft. Many men who registered were never drafted and never served.

You may have your answers by now - I hope so. :D
