USCIS information #records


Robert Hanna
 

I need some help before the fees go up.  I know there was some info on this recently, but I can't find it, and I'm not sure it answers my specific questions.  So, I apologize for any repetition.
 
My paternal grandfather emigrated to New York from Warsaw in 1907, returned to Europe, and then returned to New York in 1908.  He became a citizen in 1921.  I have his manifests on the Zeeland and the Lusitania.  I also have his Declaration and Petition for Naturalization.
 
My paternal grandmother emigrated to New York from Babruysk in 1905.  I have her manifest on the Rotterdam.  There are no separate naturalization papers for her.
 
My paternal grandparents were married in NYC in 1910.
 
My paternal grandmother's father and mother emigrated to New York from Babruysk in 1906 and 1907, respectively.  I have their manifests on the Rotterdam and the Campania.  I have not located naturalization papers for them as yet.  They were already married in Europe.
 
My maternal grandfather emigrated to New York from Minsk in 1913.  He became a citizen in 1921.  I have his manifest on the President Lincoln.  I also have his Declaration and Petition for Naturalization.
 
My maternal grandmother emigrated to New York from Minsk in 1914.  I have her manifest on the Ryndam.  There are no separate naturalization papers for her.
 
My maternal grandparents were already married in Europe (at least that's what I have been told).
 
Now my questions:
 
1.  I remember seeing something about A files and C files.  What are the differences?  Is there a B file?
 
2.  Would there be separate files on the women even though they don't have separate naturalization papers?
 
3.  How would I apply for these files?  I have been to the USCIS website and it is confusing.  I didn't see anything about A files or C files, nor did I see anything about genealogy.
 
4.  Last, my paternal grandfather's name and birth date were different on every document.  Do I have to give all the names in order to receive all his papers?
 
I would appreciate an answer to all 4 questions and any other helpful information.  Time is of the essence.
 
Thank you,
