I went on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Genealogy website and ordered an index search for Dominik Kowalski. The search is supposed to return all file numbers for the immigrant in question. My search returned a C-File number for Dominik, but no visa file number. The C-File includes a person's citizenship papers, such as the Declaration of Intention and Petition for Naturalization. I already had copies of these documents for Dominik, but I went ahead and ordered a copy of his C-File anyway, in the hopes that maybe some visa documents would be found in his there as well. I recently received Dominik's C-File documents from the USCIS, but unfortunately, no visa documents were included. I did, however, get a copy of his Certificate of Citizenship, which I did not previously have and which included a nice photo of him. I do have a couple of photos of him as a senior citizen, but this one was taken when he was much younger.
