    Seeking meaning of Abbreviations on Passenger Ship Manifest, 1891

    Jean Svadlenak Wayfarer

       
      1. Listed in the column “Baggage” : (2) CH (chests?), (2) L__(luggage?) and (1) V ___(valise?).  (inside the parens are my guesses as to what these abbreviations stand for) 

       

      2. My great-grandparent’s accommodations are listed in the column “Location of Compartment or Space Occupied” as “EPU-1.” I know there were three types of accommodations on the ships that brought immigrants to America: first class, second class and steerage.  Which compartment is EPU-1?
