The Aliens Are Coming: USCIS Record Sets
  • Presenter: Rich Venezia Rich Venezia
  • Date:  Tuesday, October 17, 2017
  • Time: 7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description: A-Files? AR-2 Forms? C-Files? Oh my! Wade through the alphabet soup of the record sets the US Citizenship & Immigration Services holds to find where your immigrant ancestor may be hiding. In addition to handling current immigration into the USA, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) holds indispensable genealogical records for anyone with post-1906 immigrant ancestors. This lecture explores a bit about how USCIS came to be, but more importantly, the valuable records it holds. Participants will learn who is likely to show up in which USCIS file set, how the index searching and ordering process works, and see examples of each record set held by USCIS. The files that will be discussed are: 
    • A-Files (Alien Files) (including which files are held at HARA and which are held by USCIS) 
    • AR-2s (Alien Registration Forms) 
    • C-Files (Naturalization Certificate Files) 
    • Registry Files 
    • Visa Files
