When I incorrectly said "petition papers" I mean his Declaration of Intent papers.

Many years ago, in the pre-historic pre-computer days when genealogy was all footwork, I was luck enough to be allowed to dig through record books in the basement of the Old County Building (Wayne Co.) in Detroit, Michigan. I found my grandfather's petition papers and had them copied. I love that it gave his immigration date and the name of the ship he came on. Of course, his memories weren't quite accurate, but it definitely gave me something to go on. Now, with me living out of state, searching those records for other ancestors is impossible. Besides distance issues, I believe the record books have been moved elsewhere. I swear trying to research anything in Detroit is hard enough if you live there, but from out of state it's darned near impossible.
