Question 2: The Event Type and Year Range (waypoint) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. Is there a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer 2: The following list of known waypoint discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:
• Fulton > Petition evidence from 1908-1943 vols 1835 through 49916 should be labeled Certificate of Naturalization Stubs as they are stub books from the Certificates that were issued.
• Fulton > Petitions for Naturalization and Petition Evidence could more simply be titled Petitions of Naturalization.
