Jill Newmark wrote about a relative who appears simultaneously on two
seperate passenger list databases. There may be a simple explanation.

I had a family member whose name appears seperately on both the Ellis Island
and Boston Harbor databases for different ships but with the same departure
date, Oct 26, 1923.
It turns out that her name did appear on an Ellis Island manifest, but it
was clearly crossed out with a horizontal line thru the center of the record.
She clearly must have made a last minute change and took the other ship to
Boston. That did not prevent the crossed out New York entry from being entered
on the Ellis Island database and her name appears on a database search as if
she had taken the ship to New York.
