Kevin, likely you know the answer or perhaps Jeanette:)

On the url above, in column 18, we have 4 entries - Na, Pa, Al or A1, and .

I interpret . to indicate no data in that column but I am not sure of what the others represent. The website does not provide any information or I missed seeing it. I went back to the originating place and no clear data so I am putting it here for an answer.

That column is for their immigration status:
Na - Naturalized and usually the year
Pa - Pending: papers have been filed but not yet naturalized
Al - Alien: has not applied yet for naturalization
. - could just be a pen slip. No meaning that I know of.

All so simple but I just did not want to make a guess so decided to check with the forum.

I interpret the "dot" to indicate that the line was blank on the form.
