Re: Immigration via Hoboken? #usa

I sent a short message to Laurie about the “port” of Hoboken.  Hoboken had docks for the Hamburg-America Line, and perhaps berthed other ships as well.  The port however should be the Port of New York... that is, Ellis Island.  The important part of the message is that the arrival was shown on the naturalization papers to be 1898.  She should check for the ship arrivals page at stevemorse.org to see if it actually did arrive on Sept. 12th, 1898.  Any arrival information before 1905, when immigration authorities had to certify ship arrival information on the Certificate of Arrival during the naturalization process  should be considered suspect.  I suggested to Laurie that she throw away her assumptions about the arrival information, and concentrate on Ellis Island arrivals.  However, if the person came on first or second class, those manifests from 1897 to 1902 are missing from Ellis Island.
