A record of passengers and crew who traveled on a ship or airplane.

A manifest may include information about travelers including their name, age, place of birth, place of origin, names of relatives traveling with them (and their familiar relationships), names and addresses of friends of relatives in the country in which the travelers originated, and in the country to which they are going, etc.

Some fields on a manifest are commonly indexed by sites that provide access, but other information may only be available on the actual image. Also, some manifests span multiple images.
