Re: Sara Lynns' naturalization question, March 4:

To get naturalization records >from the INS, you need to make a Freedom of
Information Act/Privacy Act request. Use INS Form G-639, which you can get
on http://www.ins.usdoj.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/g-639.htm . I did this
and received a copy of INS' naturalization certificate files for my
great-grandfather, Abe Lieb FEIGENBAUM, in about 3 months. There was no
charge!

You need to ask for "C-files" which are naturalization certificate files,
containing Declaration of Intention, Petition for Naturalization, and
Certificate of Naturalization. Send your request to INS headquarters in
Washington, D.C. More information is at
http://www.ins.usdoj.gov/graphics/aboutins/history/NatzRec/NATREC.htm .
