In looking at one of my ancestors immigration records, it says Nationality: Venezuela, Race: Apa Amer., Country: Can't read it (I think it says D.W.I) Town: Curacao. What does Apa Amer stand for? I tried googling it several different ways and all i got was American Psychololical Association.

It would appear to be a typo.

Most likely it was meant to be Spa -- meaning Spanish American.

Look up in that same column and you will see Spa. Amer, which would be Spanish American.

D.W.I = Dutch West Indes

Country Venez. = Venezueala

Thats what i thought at first but none of them were citizens yet. Do they mean Spanish American as in South America?
