I was looking up my grandmother's sister and found her listed on a ship. Her occupation is servant and there are numbers by her name: 6-47247 6/20/36. Does anyone know what this means? Other people with the occupation servant on this ship have similiar numbers.

The answer to this question, and others about markings on the ship manifest can be found at the essay by Marian Smith, Historian for the US Immigration and Naturalization Service...
