These alien depositions, which were filed in the office of the Secretary of State of New York, for the years 1825-1848, provide some or all of the following pieces of information: the aliens place of residence, regularly by county and often by village, town, or city, is stated- country of birth, sometimes with name of county or department, is often given- date of birth, the age when the alien arrived in the U.S., or when he deposed, is occasionally recorded- date of arrival may be found- and status of a woman (single, married, or widowed) is usually set forth, as is the name of a husband, with his trade or profession.
