City/County of Naturalization - (9/3) There are no plans to add a naturalization city or county field to the template.
State or Province - When a state or province is recorded, enter it in this field.
Country - When Great Britian is recorded, enter it as the country. (Added 9/2) Do not index birth states or provinces in this field, index them in the birth state or province field.
Denied Naturalizations - If there is no naturalization year on the card use the denied year, but only if it is on the front of the card - Example
Dates - Year -If there is only a two digit number on the document and you can reasonably determine the actual year, add the first two digits. If you cannot reasonably determine the actual year, enter what is on the record. For example, other dates on the card, such as the birth or arrival dates might help in determining the naturalization year. Example
