Notes from the NARA catalog...[with addition]
"This microfilm publication reproduces three alphabetical card indexes to passenger arrival records for the port of San Francisco, May 1, 1893--May 9, 1934. The first 21 rolls reproduce the general index to passengers. The second alphabetical index on rolls 22--27, relates to individuals arriving from the Philippines, from Honolulu (September 30, 1902--June 12, 1907), and from Insular Possessions (May 28, 1907--October 28, 1911)." [The final roll (#28) indexes East Indian passengers.]

"The records, which are arranged alphabetically by name of passenger, were extracted from the San Francisco passenger lists. Each entry provides the date of arrival and the vessel name. In the upper right hand corner of each index card there is a reference to the manifest number, the page number, and the line number on which the passenger's name appears. For example, 10383/15/23 refers to manifest number 10383, page 15, line 23."

"These records were transferred to the National Archives on microfilm. Errors in arrangement and ommissions cannot be corrected. Defective images, which were identified when the records were filmed, were microfilmed again, and the corrections were spliced on the beginning of each roll as retakes."

So this series is divided into three parts...
  • Rolls 1-21 comprise a general index to non-Chinese passengers
  • Rolls 22-27 index persons arriving from the Philippines & Honolulu (Sept 30, 1902-June 12, 1907) and insular possessions (May 28, 1907-Oct 28, 1911)
  • Roll 28 indexes persons arriving from the East Indies
