The new fee schedule has been posted in the Federal Register. Not as bad as the original proposed rates but still pretty steep. The post is at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/08/03/2020-16389/us-citizenship-and-immigration-services-fee-schedule-and-changes-to-certain-other-immigration

Here is the excerpt from the table showing the genealogy fees:

Well, I won't be using them again.  cheeky

Almost seems worth doing paper filing, so they will need to work doing the input angel

They sometimes can't find anything and you have to start over. That happened trying to find my Dad's case file. They can't find any record he naturalized. I have since found his papers so better file using the number on them before the price hike hits.
