Hi I can't seem to find a record on any passenger list for John/Iwan/Jan Poletza. Each one of the attached documents list a different date and ship. Not sure why. Thank you for your time

I found a new way to search and I found the ship, but I can't find him when I search the ship name is Trave arriving in New York from Hamburg on 3 Jun 1906

Since the Declaration of Intent was filed closer to his arrival (filed 1916) - I would favor the information regarding arrival date in that document. The Petition for narualization was filed in 1921. Memories become more unreliable as time passes.

So I would search the SS Trave manifests for arrival on or about 24 July 1907. The date on the Declaration of Intent.

I will see what I can find.

I've sometimes found that the ship name on a citizenship document was in error.
