I have indexed and reviewed New York as well as Missouri Naturalization records. Although the records are the same, the project instructions in the samples are not the same.. in the NY project, I am instructed to enter "Buffalo, Western District, New York", with the addition of United States if is is stated. In the Missouri project, I am instructed to enter "Missouri", omitting the district, and United States is never used.
It is evident that some people indexed both, because as I review the Missouri records, I see place names entered according to the New York instructions.
Is there a reason for the difference in instructions?
