Unlocking Notation Codes on Alien Passenger Lists

by Elizabeth Williams Gomoll, CG

Finding an immigrant's name on a passenger list is exciting, but there's more information on that sheet than you might expect. Learn what the cryptic abbreviations and number codes jotted on U.S. customs manifests can reveal about an immigrant's experience when they arrived in "Amerika."

Elizabeth Williams Gomoll, CG, has been doing genealogy research for more than 40 years. She is president of the Association for Professional Genealogists Northland Chapter and co-editor of Minnesota Genealogist, the quarterly journal of the Minnesota Genealogical Society. Specializing in upper Midwest U.S. and Swedish genealogy, she owns Red Bird Genealogy Services.
