Event Date on US, Missouri-Naturalization Records
I am reviewing indexed Missouri Naturalization Records and have a question about the instructions for the Event Date fields. In the project instructions, it says "Multiple dates may be indicated on a document. When typing the event date, use the most recent date that relates to the naturalization process.". On some forms, the most recent date is the arrival date. However, the field help for this project specifically says "Do not index the arrival date." In the batch I am reviewing currently, the indexer has used the arrival date for the event date. https://www.familysearch.org/indexing/batch/a561c63f-c32e-46b4-83ca-ca06e7598315
Should I mark the fields blank instead? Is there a different date that would be considered related to the naturalization process?
