Thank you for your help.

I had no trouble finding Aron GREIF using the White Form >from Steve Morse's
site. (The Blue Form couldn't be used because the 1893 manifests did not
ask for or show whether a person was a "Hebrew"). I also had no trouble
enlarging the image using the magnifier provided on the right side of the
Ellis Island page ("Click to enlarge manifest"). The only information
shown in the enlarged manifest, additional to the posting, is that Aron was
27 yrs old, a pedlar (sic), an Austrian whose last residence was Austria,
destination was New York, he could read and write and he came with 3 pieces
of luggage.

If Lois was asking about how to print an enlarged image, that's a whole
different story. Perhaps someone can correspond with her privately.
