A name that is lined out either (1) was not on board the ship at all
or (2) is on another page of the manifest.

I have seen where a family does not get to the ship on time, or a
family member is too sick to travel. They can usually be found on
another ship a week or maybe more later.

Hello Fellow Genners.
What does it mean when a passenger's name is lined through on a
ship's manifest? I was thinking maybe he upgraded his ticket from
steerage to first or second class or that maybe he missed the boat
entirely. His name did not appear in the upgraded registry of the
ship. I also checked the manifest for passengers detained or held
for special inquiries - nothing. To add to the mystery, on his
Declaration of Intention four years later in April 1911, he
indicated that he came over on the SS President Lincoln on June 4,
1909. The ship definitely arrived in New York on that date, but
he wasn't on the manifest. Thank you for your comments.
