I have been trying to find out when a relative (who held a Polish
passport) left the US for Palestine in the 1940s. Thanks to the great
suggestion of a Genner, I just received much fascinating information
from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, including his"application for reentry permit." On this form it says he intended to
depart on board the ship "Marine Carp" for Egypt and Palestine on
December 15, 1946. Is there any way to ascertain whether he actually
did this sailing -- for example a manifest of outbound passengers?
His grandchildren in Israel think he came later, so I'm curious about
whether he actually made the voyage as stated on the reentry permit.
