    Seeking US visa issued in Bucharest

    Jessica M Newbie

      I am seeking the remaining records that may exist for a visa issued in Bucharest in 1925. I am aware that the state departments destroyed documents that may include 1925. If the documents were destroyed, what still exists and where would it be located? (e.g. the visa that was surrendered in the US upon landing). Where would any remaining copies of these records be located and what is the procedure for requesting copies?
