Re: Help understanding ship manifest #records

A clarification to Marlise's post:  according to Marian Smith's Manifest Markings article on JewishGen (https://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/name/), naturalization verification markings are made in the Occupation column,  The markings on this particular manifest record are in the Name column, so they are for correspondence or record checks.

I would check the Name Index to INS Correspondence @ NARA (https://catalog.archives.gov/id/4709010) to see if the passenger's name is found.  For all the gory details, please read Marian's wonderfully detailed posting here: https://groups.jewishgen.org/g/main/message/663626?reply=1

The copy of the manifest at FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-L1X9-XV5?i=407&cc=1368704&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AJF7T-XZ3 ) is a bit clearer.  The date appears as 3/20/25 to my eyes.
