Individuals who immigrated to the United States as minors were subject to a slightly different (shorter) naturalization process than those who immigrated as adults. As a result these naturalizations were sometimes filed separately from “adult naturalizations” in a separate book.

In some counties, the minor naturalizations may be filed in a separate part of the book that contains the “normal” naturalizations.

Individuals under the age of majority could not naturalize of their own accord.That’s not the way “minor” naturalization should be interpreted.
