The following extract forms can be used to record information extracted from passenger manifests while viewing them online or from a microfilm reader.  The forms are designed so that each individual is extracted in their own column, rather than their own line number as on the original manifests.  Column descriptions from the original manifests are listed on each line in the left column.  This sheet is designed so that it can be viewed in portrait orientation for ease of filing.
