probably very accurate. Applicants for naturalization had to get

Often the Dept. employee would write the Dept. of Labor
certificate number near the name of the person who they were
certifying and on the actual passenger list. Its not uncommon to
see these notations all through the ships records and over a long
period of time.
If you are working off that kind of record, then someone else
has already done some of your work before you and you should go
with that information.
