Re: Naturalization Petitions - US District Court, Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn)- #records

The collections on FamilySearch are named by the source, in this case NARA.  If FamilySearch were to rename them, it would become confusing.

The good news is that it is easy to reformulate your search to find the correct collection.  The secret is to use the "keyword" option of the FS catalog ( ).  I always do a search in the format <jurisdiction> <record type>.  In your case, this becomes "New York Eastern District petition".  This specific search returned 17 results and the "Final petition and citizenship papers (New York), 1865-1958" collection is the third result returned.
