Puzzling Ship Manifest Notations

Postby February » 05 Mar 2016, 04:15

I've been looking at a ship manifest https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-G5D2-9FL8?mode=g&i=280&wc=MFKS-DP8%3A1030015701%3Fcc%3D1923888&cc=1923888
On line 16, Carmine Ferraioli, there is an entry under Section 12 that says T. of C. 29. Could that be related to a hand-written entry over his name that says D.W. 56010/463 - issued 5/3/29?

I've found a a post that explains the other initials in Section 12:
QIV = Quota Immigrant Visa
NQIV = Non-quota Immigrant Visa
PV = Passport Visa
RP = Reentry Permit

Does anyone know what T. of C. 29 means? Or what D.W.56010/463 - issued 5/3/29 refers to?

Thanks for any help!

and abt:
Or what D.W.56010/463 - issued 5/3/29 refers to? (5/3/39 right)
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/manifests/natlty/
I believe that is abt the his naturalization

Thank you suanj!

If I understand Transit Certificates correctly, he was landing in the US, but on his way elsewhere. Carmine was married in Canada - so this Transit Certificate makes a lot of sense. But if that's correct, the D.W. number would have to be something other than a naturalization number.

Thanks again for all your help.

D.W. marking is a mystery!
