It seems a little unclear about 'Birth Place' - declarations seem to renounce citizenship of countries outside the U.S. and specify these previous citizenships. Should these be taken as 'Birth Place' where there is no other indication?
- A: Yes. Per Anna, -
Record states: United Kingdom of Great Britain & Ireland Birth Place: United Kingdom
Record States: King of Sweden & Norway Birth Place: Sweden, Norway
Record States: Great Britain and Ireland Birth Place: Great Britain, Ireland -- Wiedwoman 17:40, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Q: Instructions say "key right side only of two pages." I have come upon some where the two pages are the two items to key, i.e., left side Declaration and right side Petition. Do we still only key the right side, i.e. Petition and not key the Declaration?
- A: Only key the document on the right side. -- Wiedwoman 17:40, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Q: I have an image with both a Declaration and Petition on it; both are readable. How should I key this? Just key one or make a separate section for the Petition?
- A: It is probably the declaration that is laying on top of the petition. You would only key the declaration. And you will only key one record. -- Wiedwoman 19:52, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
