|Dear Researcher, |
A NARA archivist has reviewed your question and provided you a response.
Ms. Yeoman, NATURALIZATION RECORDS AFTER 1906: US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) 1. After September 26, 1906, the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) collected a copy of each certificate of Naturalization issued, called certificate or "C" files. 2. For naturalizations after 1906, you should contact USCIS. 3. See uscis.gov/graphics/abo...natrec.htm 4. Or call the USCIC customer service number (1-800-375-5283). USCIS will charge a fee to complete your request.
|Was that paper from your family or the court? The court would hold the actual Intention, Petition and final oath for naturalization. There, even in 1917, is a certificate presented to the naturalized person. I have all my family's paperwork but not the certificate so I have now sent to obtain a copy of the certificate (C-files)|
If that paper is from your family you may want to check around and see if you can find a copy of the the other papers and the certificate. Otherwise you will have to send for all that.
