naturalizations created in NYC's two federal courts (Southern and Eastern
Districts) and can make better copies.
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).
