I have a
United States of America Petition for Naturalization dated June 20, 1940 from Gillespie, Macoupin, Illinois that is very hard to read. It came from a
USCIS Naturalization Records Search Request and the response was a hard paper printout and labeled as being a Freedom of Information Act request. I'd like to find a legible form so I know what the fine print questions are that are being filled in with larger font.
The top of the form looks like this:
The bottom left of the form looks like this:
It looks like the form might be a
No. 5191, but searching the web gave me nothing. Where can I locate example historical forms that are legible to know what the fields are? I often face this issue and would love if there was a central location to find U.S. forms so that the standardized sections could be clearly understood, comparable to the Enumerations Forms at IPUMS.org for the US Federal Census.
