Dear Ms. Svadlenak,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Since you already contacted the National Archives at Kansas City, we will not duplicate their efforts.
Thanks for your quick reply. NARA-KC staff was very helpful and provided some information about a broader question related to ship manifests. I have not asked this specific question previously of the NARA team. Any leads or references regarding when standardized terms were established/used would be appreciated.
