looking for (and some by accident just because distant relatives and
neighbors sometimes traveled together), I have not been able to locate my
father, and my wife's grandfather although I have their Declaration of
Intent, date of arrival and ship information. This may be part of the 30%
that hasn't been transcribed yet. I believe the only way to do this at
this point is to work through NARA to locate the microfilms of the ship's
manifest. I think the films can then be rented through NARA or the LDS FHC's.
