Help deciphering a ship manifest #records


Lynndumenil
 

Hello,
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?

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.

There were periods for which an application  for citizenship  had to to show a legal immigration record.  Form 505 was a filled out by a clerk who confirmed that this was so by checking the ship's passenger list.

The years of WWII brought out a rush for citizenship, otherwise aliens had restrictions and had to report regularly.

Lynn,

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,

Marian Smith

Have you looked for his father’s Naturalization records?  That might help you go forward by going back first.
