Naturalization Act in Canada - found the index, but not the documents?

+4 votes

I'm searching for the naturalization acts of my greatgrand-uncles and aunts in Canada. While I found the documents of my greatgrandfather and two brothers, I can't find others, altough the records should be online from 1851-1945.

This is the naturalization act of my greatgrandfather Antonio and his brothers Luigi and Pardo D'Alessandro:
This is great so far.

For other uncles and aunts I only found the index:
Giuseppe D'Alessandro with his wife and daughter, Naturalization in 1929:
Domenico Lepore, Naturalization in 1933:
Lucia Lepore nee D'Alessandro, Naturalization in 1946:

Now I don't really understand why I found my greatgrandfather in 1915, but didn't found the records of 1929 and 1933, if they should be online up to 1945? What did I missed?
I tried different searches with just given name, just family name, with wildcards, with different spellings.

I'm sure this are my relatives, as I already have many other data about them. I just hope to get more details from the Naturalization Act.

Thank you very much for any hint.

I wish I could help.  My only thought is to enquire directly at Library and Archives Canada.  Their contact details are published here:

Thank you. As much as I found out, only Canadian citizens can order copies. But I will write them anyway and ask them why I can't find the records online.

If you search for " Fee: $5.00, payable to the Receiver General for Canada " on that page, you'll see how a non-citizen can order. 

Thank you. I did read the page :-). I just hoped the records would be online (as the first two should be to my understanding) as this would be much easier than hiring a freelance researcher.

this is the page explaining the database for such.  Note that there are alternate spelling options, considering how wildly things get spelled and the added complication of the readers who compiled these lists possibly misreading, I would try that avenue with wildcards.

Thank you. I already tried different spellings and wildcards, also just the given name and then just the family name, each with different spellings and with wildcards.
I don't know what to try else.
