Have been following this thread with great interest..

Steven, I don't think you are misunderstanding anything. Just mislead.

I have said it so many times that Naturalization documents can lead you on a wild goose chase.

But as soon as I see a certificate of arrival I tend to believe what is actually written on there... most of the time.

A researcher once told me that "they" use a book which has a list of arrivals (dates) and a list of ships which they use to get their information to fill out the certificate without actually looking for the passenger list. But not in all cases..

I've seen it myself with other passengers though.. a Certificate of Arrival which had the wrong information.. and always had wondered how could this be?? The Certificate of Arrival looks and sounds like a very accurate document.. but it's not..

My question to you now.. does the Certificate of Arrival information match the information that is on the Naturalization documents? Is there anything different at all?
