Re: Help deciphering a ship manifest #records

It looks like he is from Skulak.

The numbers are his intent to naturalize and represent the certificate of arrival when they found his passenger manifest as it was dated 1941 he was probably naturalized 3 or 4 years later in the NYC area. He needed to find the manifest page in order to proceed with the naturalization petition.

It also looks like an X is to the left of his name
Which means he is either on a detained manifest or special inquiry page and you can check those as they are either in the front or the back of the regular manifest pages and you can look to see if you find him there.

Hope this helps.

I wonder if anyone can help decipher the residence place for Wolf Cohen, line 16 on this manifest. There are at least two other names with the same town.
I also am curious to know if the notation above his name is for him or for the preceding passenger.  And what does it mean?   1-A-3584-(505?) 10/20/41.  Social security perhaps?  Something to do with WWI?
