One collection, Series I, Individual Case Files, 1886-1997, has 14,000
+ folders, indexed by name and date (years only).

page explaining how to request more information.

I found two relatives in the files, one a cousin, the other an uncle.
The cousin received assistance in 1967. Her deceased father had been
naturalized some years earlier and she was applying for a copy of his
naturalization certificate to show that she, as his daughter, was also a
citizen. Form was N-600 "Application for Certificate of Citizenship"
I looked on-line for N-600 today. The title is the same but the format
has changed since 1967

The uncle, in 1934, filled out form A-2213. "Application for
Certificate of Arrival and Preliminary form for a Declaration of Intention"
