The information that obtained from the extracted ships manifest include the name and age of the immigrant, the native country, destination, port of embarkation, the ship name and date of arrival to the New York Port. Other items of interest that are possibly available to view in the record is the person's occupation, whether or not they can read or write, and what area of the ship in which the person traveled.
