Above are various signatures from the INS records that were released to Mr. Kenneth Allen, pursuant to an FOIA request. Dates of the signatures by Lolo Soetoro are included in the snippets. Click the image to enlarge it. The earliest signature was from 1963, top left corner. The bottom image is from the Soetoro/Dunham marriage record. Oddly enough, signatures of some of the INS employees resemble Lolo Soetoro’s handwriting.
Mr. John O’Shea’s signature changes from time to time, too.
Some facts deduced from the records:
Lolo Soetoro was in the USA between 9/18/1962 and 6/20/1964 under a grant, studying at the East-West Center of the U of Hawaii, Manoa.
Lolo Soetoro returned to Indonesia on 7/20/1966. Subsequently, he and his then-wife Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro attempted to obtain a waiver of a two-year non-residency requirement, so that he could return to the USA. It was denied and sometime around August 1968, Stanley Ann Soetoro left the USA to join her husband in Indonesia.
Lolo Soetoro re-entered the USA on 10/6/1972 and appears to have remained in the country until 2/6/1974.
Lolo Soetoro was in Indonesia between 2/1974 until 5/1974.
Up until her marriage to Lolo Soetoro, Stanley Ann Dunham was supported by her parents.
Here’s a list of signatures for Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro, to which I added the one on the right:

Here’s a mystery: Within the INS records is a letter from Lolo Soetoro, wherein he presents his case for a waiver. For some reason, in mid-sentence (mid-word, actually), it appears that he either switched typewriters or switched the font, which was possible if he was using an IBM Selectric and switched font balls. The only other possibility is that he used a then-60-year-old Blickensderfer and switched font cylinders. Twice.
The letter was 3 pages. If we’re to believe our eyes, he wrote page 1, switched fonts, wrote page 2, switched fonts again, and then wrote page 3.
Above is the last switch, between pages 2 and 3, where fonts changed in mid-word. Explain it if you can. Is it an illusion, resulting from scanning and copying? You be the judge.
