The BCIS (formerly INS) makes copies >from its own microfilm. The National
Archives-Northeast Region on Varick Street in New York holds the original
naturalizations created in NYC's two federal courts (Southern and Eastern
Districts) and can make better copies.

Money-saving tip:

Italian Genealogy Group website (www.italiangen.org), where many of us are
using the Southern District naturalization index, says to send NARA $10 per
name when requesting copies of naturalization records. In fact, NARA policy
is to copy up to three person's records for $10 (maximum 20 pages total).
