Dear Linda,
First, you might not have needed to pay a researcher to get the
record for you, unless you were in a great hurry. Second, your
researcher may have been looking in the wrong archives.

These records were created by the New York Supreme Court of New York
County. The records are stored at the Division of Old Records,
rather than at NARA. You can check with them at:

New York County Clerk's Office/Division of Old Records
State Supreme Court, New York County
31 Chambers Street
New York (Manhattan), NY
(212) 374-374-4376

If your researcher went to the wrong archives, perhaps they will try
again. If they went to Chambers St and weren't successful, let us know --.

You can send also a request by mail, which I have done.

Good luck!

I have found a reference to what is most likely my g. grandfather's
declaration of intent on one of the major for fee genealogy
websites. It states that between 1907-1924, Luis KRAIDBERG filed a
declaration of intent (first papers) in the county court of New
York (Manhattan) and the declaration volume number is 536 and the
page number is 378.

I reside in North Carolina and cannot easily travel to NY to do the
research myself. I hired a very reliable researcher to perform this
lookup for me.
She was unable to locate the above listed record. Any ideas of where
to look for this? I gave her other possible spellings of this
surname and of his given name. Any ideas of what to do now? Is it
possible that the volume number and page number were switched around
during the indexing?
