The use of a ? indicates a word or letters that could not be read due to quality of the original document. ^ The use of a ^ indicates that the letter/letters following are superscripted. The transcription preserves the original spelling. The manifest scribe did not number the passengers; the numbers have been added by the transcriber to aid with referencing. All ditto marks on the original manifest have been replaced with the actual words indicated. The manifest scribe used vertical lines probably to indicate continuation/duplication of the last written word(s). The manifest scribe used a Germanic letter resembling 'fs'; to aid in reading, these have been transcribed to 'ss'. 3 First name could be Alen or Alon. 17-19 Surname could be Tuton or Yuton. 18-19 Ending of first names illegible. 21 Ending of first name illegible.
