The census record also showed that Meyer arrived in the United States in 1900 and he was naturalized. It was then the desire to find the naturalization for Meyer. Not knowing much more than that, we took a look at the records available online at www.familysearch.org Much to my relief, amongst those collections were the indexes to the Illinois, Northern District Naturalization records for 1840-1950.
Using that index, I was able to locate the card containing the information on Meyer.
The card (above) verifies that Meyer was indeed born in in 1869, in Russia and arrived in New York in 1900. Additional information provides with the name of a possible relative, Samuel. Once again the databases available at www.familysearch.org are incredibly valuable for finding our ancestors.
