I have a ship log (Umbria, arr. NY Feb. 19, 1906) for my great grandfather Shmuel Raskin, his wife, and 7 children, the youngest of whom is Wolf, age 4. In the last columns on the ship log for Wolf it says "Dr Certificate Idiot." On the Special Inquiry log, Shmuel and Wolf are deported, the others are admitted on appeal. Thanks to a great Boston JGSGB Zoom session I recently attended conducted by Marian Smith, I have found in indexes 2 index cards listing the appeal and rehearings. The first is headed "REHEARINGS, Jany-26-06" and lists "50,030-1 RASKIN family; Ch-Idiot-Sec 11". The second is headed "Appeals. New York (Feby-5-06)" and lists "50,030-1 RASKIN Schmuel & wf & 6-ch; Idiot-sec-11" (The dates in the headings are surely wrong - unless they are the starting date for each card's list? - because their ship didn't arrive until Feb. 19, 1906.)
1) Is there likely to be any correspondence about this case?
2) If so, is 50,030-1 the index case number, in which case I can use it on a Genealogy Records Request USCIS Form G-1041A to see if there is any correspondence about this? or do I have to still submit a request to find the index case number?
3) What is Section 11?
