I am attempting to use the example in EE 11.17, Passenger Manifests: Online Images, for citing the manifests present on the Statue of Liberty—Ellis Island Foundation website.
I started off as follows:
Source List Entry
Statue of Liberty—Ellis Island Foundation. Database with images. https://www.libertyellisfoundation.org: 2019.
First Reference Note
1 Manifest, S. S. California, 3 May 1909, stamped p. 136, line 8, Charles Murison, age 17; images, “Passenger Search,” Statue of Liberty— Ellis Island Foundation (https://www.libertyellisfoundation.org : accessed 10 April 2019).
11 Manifest, S. S. California, 3 May 1909, stamped p. 136, line 8, Charles Murison, age 17.
However; the full sheet typically spans two images, but the example used as my model does not seem to reflect that.
The passenger name and age is on the left-most image and the page number is on the right-most image. The line numbers are on both pages (as on all the image sets). Half the sheet title is on each page (departure and arrival). Furthermore, there is a List "letter" on the right-hand image and this is also seems to be relevant, since there are several folios per landing.
There is really nothing much on the left-hand image to tie it to the right-hand one except the sequential image numbers. I don't like using image numbers as identifiers, but I see no other way. Even the website warns one to check backwards and forwards from the image returned by the search to make sure one has the correct image(s).
That said; I know I have the correct left-and-right pair, because the passengers father paid for the ticket and I see his name on the right-most image on the same line as his son is on in the left-most image.
Have you any suggestions on how to address this situation?
(I should note that the example 11.17, page 577, 3rd ed., appears to be missing the closing parenthesis.)
