    Passenger List numbers written by hand. What do they stand for?


      I've viewed several passenger lists such as the one at this link:



      If you look closely you will see handwritten numbers next to some of the names. The 7 digit numbers are proceeded by an "A.R."


      Does anyone know what these numbers stand for?

      Does anyone know where you could look up a record using that number?


      Some of my assumptions:

      AR – Arrival Record

      AR – Administrative Record

      AR – Alien Record


      Here is an example (A.R. 5199716)


      Handwritten numbers with an AR on Passenger Lists and Immigration Records
