G-1041, Genealogy Index Search Request
Form G-1041 is used to request a search of U.S. Citizenship and immigration services (USCIS) archival databases. To access the copies of USCIS archival records, you need to use the Form G-1041A, Genealogy Records Request. This request is to find out whether there are any USCIS records that exist on the immigration and if it does, to capture the file number and other information of each record. If you are a researcher seeking records of your ancestors for genealogical or family history purpose or if you are a historian or social scientist seeking archived records of persons you can identify by name, date of birth, or place of birth, you can use this form.
