Riley County Naturalization Records...... 
Behind a naturalization document is the story of someone who wanted to become an American citizen. The legacy of that decision is a powerful piece of our family story. Naturalization records provide rich details of ancestral origins, dates, ports of entry and ship of arrival.
Your ancestor might have started the process soon after arriving near his or her port of entry, or moved on to another location, and completed the process in an entirely different city or state.
RCGS has digitalized and indexed early Naturalization Records for Riley County found in microfilm rolls for Riley County, U.S. District Court.  These are Records of Naturalization 1859-1943 and there are 3 types of records, Declaration of Intentions, Petition for Naturalization, and Final Naturalization Papers.  Not everyone who filed a Declaration of Intention completed the full process. 
See if your ancestor has a record using the Surname Search feature and click on type record option.
