Naturalization verification notations on passenger manifests #general


Russ Maurer
 

In the JewishGen infofile on passenger manifest markings in the occupation column
(http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/occ/), it is stated that the
naturalization verification markings start with the district number (one or two
digits) followed by the application number (most commonly six digits). I am finding
that this longer number is usually, or maybe always, the certificate of arrival
number, not the application number. I could provide any number of examples. I
have yet to find one that I can verify as an application number, at least as far as
the New York City area. If anyone can provide an example where the notation is
definitely an application number, I would like to know about it.
