hey, thanks. that helped a bit. so the number i found is the certificate of arrival number. then can i request from NARA the naturalization papers related to that number if that's all I have, along with their name? Or do I need more info?

The Certificate of arrival number is of little use as an item to request Naturalization Papers. You need to request by name (and any aka) and the year.

The first is actually lpc, likely to be a public charge. For the second, 250 is probably being misread. Can you list the immigrant, the date and the ship so that the response will be more than mere conjecture.

Surnames: Paja
Thanks -the name is: Juliana Paja, Arrived: Sept. 25, 1911
Ship: Prinz Friedrich Willhelm -I assumed she was traveling with a child approx. 18 mos. old but from the ship manifest I can't tell. I was informed that lpc meant 1 person w/child, and that would have made sense to me. I'm not so sure now. Juliana did get deported but I thought it was because of the sick child. Juliana returns to the US in June 1913 -Ship: Rhein, through the port of Baltimore with a child who is definately listed. You have been very helpful and I thank you!
