In 1881, the City Court expanded to include all of Chatham County. This change was reflected in 1970, when the name was changed to the State Court of Chatham County.


Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of an alphabetical index to naturalization records from the Port of Savannah. Georgia. This index was compiled by volunteers at the Georgia Historical Society from naturalization records contained in the Savannah City Court and Savannah County Superior Court records. Two rolls of microfilm duplicate the index found in the boxes. A folder containing index information and a resource guide to the collection is also available. The index cards cover the years 1794-1910, while the microfilmed cards cover 1801-1908.

The index was microfilmed by the Georgia Department of Archives and History in 1985 through a grant from the R.J. Taylor, Jr. Foundation.
