Please NOTE there is not a manifest found anywhere that lists ethnicity? Prior to c. 1900s ONLY Nationality was listed, which simply means citizenship. Later another column would be added to manifests titled "race or people", which is what we call ethnicity today. I don't know why ancestry and Ellis Island insist on using a term NOT found on manifests, it only confuses people.
