Hi

Im searching for my mothers uncle Elias Eliassen born sep 30. 1904 (Norway).
Elias immigrated to the states in 1924. Elias married an italian girl Esther Mary.
They had two sons David and Edvard. Esther an the boys came to visit norway in 1931.

The attached ship manifest is the last record of that family.

The ship manifest has a passport number, can this traced?

Any help is highly appreciated.
