  1. I know it is early in the morning when I am reading this, but it appears from the way this list was presented that Ancestry.com really doesn’t have all the passenger lists on line. The way I read this is, the NARA rolls that are listed are what Ancestry posted. There appears to be gaps in the numbers listed. Ancestry, please clarify.

  2. I wonder if this has been corrected since your post? The way it reads now specifies that the gaps are already online:

    “…M237, rolls 1-94, 581-675 (95-580 are already online)…”

    “…T715, rolls 1-5591, 6268-8892 (5592-6267 are already online)…”
