If yes, then call the number and give them your CC info and you'll receive photo copies of the file in a few weeks. This has been some time ago, but that's how I was able to get Naturalization files for 2 of my GGF's.
Hope this helps,

I thiink I am the sole supporter of CIS. I've sent many $65 checks and got bupkus.

I have received an e-mail with attached letter telling me that my records are available. I follow the instructions and end up in a continuous loop going back to the same home screen.

Any one have better luck. If so, please advise.
