Meaning of lines?

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Meaning of lines?

Postby Violam » 23 Jul 2010, 13:51

[b] I was looking thru some ships manifests last night and noticed on one page that lines were going right thru like the first 6 people listed..what does that mean? Also some pages had NO names on the whole list and then, 'non-immagration' alien stamped on some names. What does all this mean? Thank you and have a great weekend:-)

Here's another resource: http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/

My great uncle was booked for passage, but at the last moment couldn't go because of an eye infection. His name and information appears on the manifest, but with a line through it all.
