One other caveat to this issue. There could be a difference between what is actually written on the ship manifest and what someone who transcribed the manifest has written. An example is my great grandparents and their three sons arrived into Ellis Island in October, 1904. Same last name on the ship manifest for all five. However the transcriber who did it for whatever entity, spelled their surname three different ways for the five individuals!
