Re: Are the C-Files from the USCIS worth getting? #general

I couldn't find my grandfather's sister's naturalization papers at all, which were from 1945. As a result, I requested an index search, then ordered both records the USCIS found. I did this last year. Because they had just announced calls for comments prior to their rate increase, it took about 3 months, and when they were complete, I did get a CD with the records. Two bits of information I did get as a result was a picture of her and exactly where she was born, which I couldn't find anywhere else.

Would I do it now? No. Back then, the total cost was $195, which I thought was excessive. Now that the rates have increased, I would go without.
