Do we index orders of admission?
So, I had an image described as an order of admission, and I don't know if it should be indexed, because the project instructions don't specifically say to index those, but the "no" options, including "no, duplicate image", and "no, No extractable data" don't seem to apply based on the project instructions, so I don't know if it should be indexed or not.
Thanks for sharing the batch. I would index that image, only because I have seen them referred to on other projects as "naturalization cards". There was an earlier post on here where someone said to index them. Can't hurt, I guess. Hold on to it for a bit, perhaps someone else will provide a different assessment!1
Is this in Missouri Naturalizations? Did it look like a naturalization card with a line for Date for order of Admission and also Date Certificate Issued? If yes, it is indexed.
If you still have the batch, please share the batch code to get an accurate answer. The batch code is the sequence of letters/numbers in brackets after the project title.1
Yes, it is the Missouri Naturalizations, and it does look like a naturalization card with a line for the date for order of Admission and Date Certificate Issued. Here's the batch code: M38X-5BG0
So, by saying ''If yes, it is indexed.", do you mean that I should or shouldn't index it?0
Got it, Thanks!0
Thank you for indexing these wonderful records @Barney, Tyson John.
With regards to batch M38X-5BG, if you look at the Project Instructions, What to Index, the 2nd bullet point instructs us to:
- Index the following 5 types of naturalization documents: certificates of naturalization, declarations of intention, petitions for naturalization, oaths of allegiance, and naturalization cards (italics added). If a document does not have a title or heading, look at other information on the document to determine the document type.
As these are Naturalization cards, they would be indexed.
There are many researchers looking forward to being able to find records such as these when searching for their ancestors. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!2
