I've been stumped so far trying to find parents and birthplace for Joseph Ligocki. I did find a card indicating that he naturalized in 1919: Naturalization Index. I noticed on this document it lists a "certificate number" with volume and page. Does that mean that there is more information somewhere else? How can I find Joseph's full naturalization record? Is there a different record I should try to find to get more details on his parents and place of birth? Thank you!

When you're searching, don't put in a first name. Families usually came over together .You have Joseph arriving in August 1907. Just using Logocki and date of  1907,  Also arriving between late April and early August were Andreas, Jan, Fgdazcj, Michel, Franziska, Maczin , and Stanislaw, all born within a few years of Joseph and probably brothers or cousins. Lukasz Ligocki, 20+ years older , arrived the year before. He was likely a family patriarch who went first to establish a home and brought the youngsters over.

Check 1910 and 1920 census records and see who lived with who and if the relationships are noted on the census forms

Thanks for the advice, Eddie. But I'm a little confused, could you explain in more detail how you are making these searches, on what websites, with what parameters? For example, you say "You have Joseph arriving in August 1907", but I actually have him saying he arrived in Jan 1907, when I do a search on FamilySearch I see a Joseph arriving in April from Canada into Montana, but I don't have any reason to believe that is the same Joseph I'm looking for.

In the search I linked above, Franciszka and Victoria are my relatives, but most of the others seem to be from other parts of Poland (Russian or Austrian partitions), do you have any reason to think that they are related to my Ligocki's?
