There seems to be a conflict between the project instructions and the available fields for indexing.  It seems there needs to be a "Naturalization City" field added to the project.
Project Instructions say: "If the naturalization city was not recorded on a card but a county was recorded, do not index the county."

Okay, fine.. if the County was recorded and not the City... we don't index the County. But, where do we index the City?? There is no field available to enter the Naturalization City info.

Also, note:  The Index Cards usually only mention the Naturalization City and Not the State.  Occasionally the cards mention both.

Here are the Project Instructions..

Another Problem..

Project Instructions and Field Helps both say: "If the naturalization was denied, be sure to still index the naturalization year if one was included on the record."

   Note:  If naturalization was denied, there would not be a Naturalization year on the record.

Do you mean that if Naturalization was denied... to enter the Year the Naturalization was denied?  That seems to make more sense to me.
