Does anyone know how I can obtain the file referred to in the annotation? The manifest was annotated in 1936 at the time when Abraham Katz petitioned for naturalization. Where would I locate " File No. R-72774 - R/V" which authorized the passenger's change of name (from Chernikovsky to Katz) ?
I know for certain that Abraham Katz was the passenger's true name, that he was born in 1893 in Byerazino, Minsk Gub. and that he was on the run from the Russian military when he arrived in the US in 1917. But I might learn more if I could get hold of the name-change file.
