JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Passenger manifest with p.p. entry #general

I have a 1930 Passenger Manifest showing my great-uncle Wolf HEIMOVITCH and
his wife Anna. Under the Column "If Naturalized." is typed "p.p. 231703,"
ditto for her. I thought that this was a passport number, so checked the
indexes to passports and ordered the microfilm which had #231703 in it,
dated 1922. However, #231703 was for another person. Does p.p. stand for
passport or for something else? Is it possible there were multiple numbering
schemes so that the passport #231703 that I seek is on another film? Or,
could they have just typed in the wrong number?
