DRAWER DESCRIPTIONS
      Below is listed what types of records each DRAWER has in it.
      Not every item is there for every individual indexed, but one, two or three items are there for SOME individuals. In other words, if it is stated that Book A contained petitions for naturalization, citizenship, Declaration of Intention and Certificate of Arrival, they may all be there for John Doe, but only a Declaration of Intention for Jane Doe. So, the researcher should not expect to receive everything for their ancestor. May be one, two, three, etc. documents for a given individual. This is only an attempt to give a general idea of what is contained within the respective ledger and drawer.
