When passengers left their home port , they were given ID tags
which they
wore around their necks.
Upon arrival, their names were copied >from these tags by Immigration
Most errors were made later, in transliteration of Immigration
Arrival and
Passenger documents by volunteers.
That's an interesting point. What information would have been on the
ID tags? Could you clarify the language in which they were written?
For example, my Yiddish and Russian-speaking grandmother traveled
from Antwerp to New York in 1905 on a Belgian ship. Who would have
written her ID tag and in which language?
