Many commonly asked questions, such as indexing crossed out information, have already been answered - Click the Basic Indexing Instructions link on the Project Links page to read them.

Answers posted on the updates page are official answers from support. We appreciate your questions and want to make sure any responses given on these pages are not from another source.  Someone else may give a correct answer but there is no way of knowing that unless the answer comes through the proper channels.  Because of the review process, answers may take a few days but they can always be counted on to be from an official source.

I mentioned before about adding the Naturalizaion City  field to the FSI app for this project, since the Project Instructions included instructions for entering the Naturalization City. I did this as my own complaint regarding the instructions and lack of the field... AND also because someone on the FSI  Facebook page complained about it and saying that Other  Naturalization Projects Indexing projects had a field for the Naturalization City.

I think it was a mistake to not add the field and to delete the instructions regarding the Naturalization City.

On the Project Instructions page you have a link "How to Index the Sample Naturalization Index Card".  Following that link to the sample Sample Naturalization Index Card   and how it should be indexed, it has the Naturalization city circled in Red and the instruction below, saying: "The naturalization town or city would be indexed as: Barre "

So, according to another indexer, and based on the original project instructions and the example on How to Index the Cards, I just mentioned,  the original intent before the Project began was to include the Naturalization City. Whoever programmed the download app evidently made a mistake and did not include the Naturalization City. 

I thnk it time to restore the instructions and to add the field for entering the Naturalization City.

Thank you.
