I need help to determine if I am thinking this citation through correctly.
Layer 1 & 2
Passenger Manifest, Ship Universe (Liverpool to New York), arriving 29 July 1863, unnumbered pages, entry 422 for Michl Banks; imaged in "New York, U.S., Arriving Passenger and Crew Lists (including Castle Garden and Ellis Island), 1820-1957," database with images, Ancestry (https://www.ancestry.com : viewed 20 January 2021) > Date > 1863 > Jul > 29 > Universe > image 9;
Q: There is no clear title to document. Is the description sufficient?
I am also not sure what to use as the source of source - Ancestry citation or original data.
citing "Year: 1863; Arrival: New York, New York, USA; Microfilm Serial: M237, 1820-1897; Line: 1; List Number: 790". Roll 231, not cited but identified at NARA.
citing "Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York, 1820-1897. Microfilm Publication M237, 675 rolls. NAI: 6256867. Records of the U.S. Customs Service, Record Group 36. National Archives at Washington, D.C." Roll 231, not cited but identified at NARA.
Both include information the other doesn't have and I admit, I do nor know the relevance in Ancestry's citation for "Line 1; List number 790." Nor do I know what the NAI number is, although it appears in both.
I am inclined to cite the original data instead of what Ancestry is using as a citation given that it seems to make more sense but I want to make sure I am not missing anything. Having gone to the NARA site I was able to identify the roll number, which I put at end.
