JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen 2 questions about symbols on manifests #general


In 1903 my maternal great-aunt, her husband and 3 children arrived at Ellis
Island. In looking over the passenger manifest I noticed the numbers "6501"
written directly to the left of her husband's name. Would anyone know the
significance of these numbers?

On the 1900 passenger manifest for my paternal great-uncle, the capital
letters "S" and what appears to be a "C" (i.e. "SC") are written directly
to the left of his name. Any ideas about this one?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
