Note: there is a second form being used that does not fit the directions given.  It does not collect the nationality of non-americans.  I suggest you mark the field as blank in this case.

Removed my original post because after it got escalated they removed the conflicting link. All List of US Citizen images are now type what you see.  April Robertson - Owner of Indexer's Point of View 20:17, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

But if the "If Native" field is blank, and the "If Naturalized" field contains court information on the naturalization, then the place of birth field should be blank, rather than United States; this indicates that the passenger is not a native of the U.S.

-- I agree. This would be combining the two rules where if nothing in the column then it would be blanked. April Robertson - Owner of Indexer's Point of View 00:18, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

There is a column heading on the manifests that states "Nationality (country of which citizen or subject)".  I take this to mean if a person is naturalized then that person should be considered a citizen of the United States.

-- if it states United States then index that. otherwise type what you see there.

There is no article showing to evaluate!

Trying to find the notes or special instructions for indexing New York passenger lists and nothing comes up.

Certainly Not very helpful.
