VISA and Registry Files: USCIS information #records

Moishe Miller

Dear Group,

The USCIS form G-1041-A allows for requests of five items. I understand
the first three; the A-File, the C-File and the AR-File. And, I have
those numbers from the U.S. Naturalization Records Indexes, 1794-1995 at

However, the form G-1041-A also allows for requests for VISA Files
(1924-1944) and Registry Files (1929-1944). Where do you get these
numbers from? Will an Index Search Request always provide all five index
numbers? Is there another way to find or obtain the VISA and Registry

For instance, on my grandmothers Certificate of Arrival (attached),
there are a bunch of numbers. Are any of those the VISA or Registry?
There are more numbers on the two pages of her ship manifests into
Baltimore, also attached.

Shana Tova,
