Re: Sara Lynns' naturalization question, March 4:

To get naturalization records >from the INS, you need to make a Freedom of
Information Act/Privacy Act request. Use INS Form G-639, which you can get
on . I did this
and received a copy of INS' naturalization certificate files for my
great-grandfather, Abe Lieb FEIGENBAUM, in about 3 months. There was no

You need to ask for "C-files" which are naturalization certificate files,
containing Declaration of Intention, Petition for Naturalization, and
Certificate of Naturalization. Send your request to INS headquarters in
Washington, D.C. More information is at .

In the past I put all the information in a letter. I did not know about
a specific form. Did you address your letter to the Freedom of
Information Office at INS.

Hi folks--
At's listing of NY City naturalization's, I found a man
with the same-- unfortunately fairly common-- name as my grandfather,
Sam Feinberg. The listing is for an address I do not recognize, but my
gparents seem to have moved at least once a year, so it could still be
his. It's in the Lower East Side area where he spent almost his entire
NY life.

According to this listing, naturalization was denied on 17 Dec. 1914.
As of the 1910 census, my gf was still an Alien. He died in 1912. My
question is: If he submitted his Declaration of Intent after the 1910
census, could this be a denial based on either his death or his failure
to appear for some further step in the process?

And if this is not my gf, is there any way of checking on Declarations
which were never followed up-- in case he did submit one between 1910
and 1912?
