Genealogical & Historic Archives

Naturalization Papers for the years 1802 to 1906 and Term Papers from 1733 to 1920 are now available for public review in the Prothonotary's office. The collections were microfilmed through the support of a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and with the cooperation of the Bucks County Historical Society. If you are interested in utilizing this historical resource, stop by our office in the Bucks County Court House between the hours of 8 AM and 4:15 PM, Monday through Friday, and use our on-site microfilm readers to browse through the collection (no appointment necessary). The original papers and microfilm collection are also available at the Bucks County Historical Society's Spruance Library. Contact the Historical Society for information concerning hours and appointments.
