passenger record number from "United States Russians to America Index, 1834-1897," #records

Is a passenger record number found on a citation in the United States Russians to America Index helpful in accessing more information about the passenger?  
 
I have the passenger name, ship name, and date of arrival , but I don't want to go through the laborious task of perusing manifest pages for thousands of passengers.  Any suggestions would be helpful.

Try stevemorse.org
And click on “Ships Lists”
Fill in ship name and month and year if arrival .
Click on closest arrival date and then click on name of ship. Up will come the passenger manifest for that sailing and you can scroll through the pages .

Evan,

Ancestry.com has databases of Passenger Arrival Records, however, not all the manifests are transcribed or indexed. Sometimes, going through the passenger manifest line by line is the only way to locate the person you are seeking..

Evan,

What year did your passenger arrive?  What port did they enter?
If it was NY than search the passenger's name at Steve Morse's site:

For searching all years from 1820 to 1957:

Let us know if you find their manifest.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Searching:
RATOWSKY / CHAIMSON (Ariogala, Lith.)
WALTZMAN / FRIEDES (Ustrzyki Dolne, Pol.)
BOJDA / BERGER (Tarnobrzeg, Pol.)
LEFFENFELD (Daliowa, Pol.)
BOBISH / APPEL (Odessa ?)
SAKOLSKY, (Grodek / Bialystok)

Thanks to Sherri Bobish for locating the elusive manifest.
 
Turns out the passenger's name was transcribed incorrectly.  The first letter, "B", was transcribed as "D," and the passenger was indexed accordingly.  Thinking outside the box was the key.
 
I also learned that NARA's AAD (Access to Archival Database) entry for this passenger indicated his destination as Philadelphia.  Technically that was correct, but I assumed incorrectly that that's where the ship landed.  He actually debarked in NYC and proceeded to Philadelphia.
 
By the way, I didn't see the passenger record number on the manifest.  It was a seven digit number (6258129) found on the AAD entry.  Still wondering what it means and if it's useful in finding out more information.
