Scope and Content Note

This series consists of indexes to abstracts of alien depositions (series A1870) made by the Secretary of State's office from the original, signed depositions (series A1869). Volume 1, 1825-1849, consists of two separate indexes. The first index is strictly chronological and contains the date of deposition, a sequential deposition number, and the deponent's name. The later half of the volume indexes deponents alphabetically by surname and provides page numbers for volumes of the abstracts of alien depositions. Volume 2, 1825-1866, and Volume 3, 1866-1906, are cumulative by volume number, then alphabetical by surname.
