This is a copy of the Declaration of Intention to become a United States citizen filed by Gershon Katz.

On the previously filed Petition to become a citizen, filed on September 1, 1910, the witnesses for Gershon (Harry) were his brother Sam, at that time a carpenter and his brother, Herman, a laborman.

He was admitted as a citizen on May 2, 1916

This Declaration gives the birthdate of Gershon, his place of birth, his present address and the name of the vessel he entered the United States on along with the date of entry.
