It is an index document for the US naturalization of my grandfather, indicating that he changed his name on his application papers. I want to know what the number in the top right means, and how to go about finding the original naturalization papers.

8/2/2020 11:01 PM I am basically sure that the top number refers only to this slip and not to any of his previous personal numbers. Two of his personal numbers however are mentioned below and could be your reference for additional information. The petition number should refer you to the petition, which should have plenty of his information, and his alien number should be linked to his naturalization.
8/3/2020 7:17 AM So, if I decide to request his petition document from the federal government's immigration Services, I would provide them with the petition number?
I see other posts on the discussion board about something called the certificate number, or C number. The petition number is different from this?
Thanks.
8/3/2020 10:21 PM You mean naturalization certificate number? I expect it's different from any of the numbers on this page. It may be a good idea to ask the court itself what information they need from you to be able to locate the specific documents that you are interested in and how to go about the request. I am sure they have got plenty of such requests.
