Question: How do I obtain official INS documentation?

Postby gsr224 » 14 Apr 2007, 03:52

I stopped by the local Italian consulate and they said my documentatoin looked to be in order but I needed documentation that states my relative wasn't naturalized after 1942. I have an Alien Registration certificate fomr 1941, which was after the next generation was born, showing that he was not naturalized at that time. They stated that there was a change of the law in 1942 so I required official documentation after that date.

My questions is how do I obtain this documentation?

Try this form (instructions included). They will provide a statement of "no record found" if your relative never naturalized.

You don't have to fill out form G-639. It says right on it that other written formats are acceptable. I requested a no-record certification from US Citizenship and Immigration services with just a letter (although you need to include as much relevant information about your ancestor as possible).

Mail your request for a no-record certification to:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
4th Floor, Record Services Branch
111 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20529

Super idea, especially if there is some information on the form that you cannot provide. It might be a good idea, however, to read the actual form even if you don't intend to use it. It will give you a sense of the type of information they want from you.
