Just a reminder that you can always file a FOIA request for an "A-File",
which includes all the papers your ancestor filled out when coming to
the U.S. and their naturalization papers. It's quicker if you have have
the Alien Registration Number, but it's not necessary. You get 2 hours
of research and 100 pages of records for free. Signing the request
means you agree to pay up to $25.00 for time or copies over the free
amount. If it costs more, they'll contact you. I doubt it would.
Everyone is probably going to start doing this once the fees go up. The
government may then change these rules. Who knows?
