This may or may not work. I would send xerox copy of naturalization papers you have to the Osborne County Courthouse, Probate Judge's Office Re: Naturalization Records Osborne, Kansas 67473 Ask for any additional papers they have and the cost. If they have been transferred to another location ask how to access that location. Send a SASE. I hope you find them. My great- grandfathers papers the same ones you are after were lost from the Cherokee Co. Courthouse. It would seem there should have been another copy somewhere but so far no luck finding them.I also notice there may be an Osborne Co.
