NARA Chicago

Postby iolanda2 » 22 Dec 2009, 17:31

My first request for my Mothers naturalization to the NARA in Chicago produced a form with check boxes stating no record found. The second request for a formal letter, produced the same pre-printed form indicating no record found.
My 3rd attempt was to pay a small fee for another records check which produced an email indicating no record found.
My next strategy was to write to the Chicage NARA Operations Director, requesting an official letter of no records found with an original signature.
Within 3 days of sending this letter to the Director, I received a most impressive package from the Director.
A gold seal over red ribbons adorn page one with the Directors signature.
Page two is a photocopy of my Mothers Declaration of Intention, then a copy of her petition for Citizenship, then her oath of alligiance and certificate of arrival.
NOT what I expected but an impressive response.
