Re: Help deciphering a ship manifest #records



I agree with the other replies, but in this case I suspect the "A" within the annotated number may be referring to an application for a certificate of derivative citizenship.  If so, the annotation is evidence of the process to verify/certify his arrival record, but the entire process would not result in a naturalization record you can find in a court.

If his father could have been naturalized in the US while Wolf was a minor, then his derivative certificate application and related records may all remain with USCIS in a derivative C-file. 

Just a suggestion,
