Establishment of a Genealogy Program; Correcting Amendment

AGENCY: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, DHS.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.


SUMMARY: With this amendment, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 
corrects an inadvertent error in the amendatory language from the 
Establishment of a Genealogy Program Final Rule published in the 
Federal Register on May 15, 2008.

DATES: This correction is effective January 16, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynda Spencer, Genealogy Program, U.S. 
Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security, 
1200 First Street, NE., 2nd Floor, Washington, DC 20529-2206, telephone 
(202) 272-8282.


Need for Correction

    On May 15, 2008, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 
published a final rule in the Federal Register at 73 FR 28026 
establishing a fee-for-service Genealogy Program within U.S. 
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to streamline and improve 
the process for acquiring historical records of deceased individuals. 
There was an inadvertent error in that document. In the amendatory 
language for amendment 2b at 73 FR 28030, DHS inadvertently revised the 
fifth sentence to 8 CFR 103.7(c)(1) instead of the sixth sentence. As a 
result the fifth sentence in 8 CFR 103.7(c)(1) is incorrect. This 
document corrects the error.
