Hi Clare,

This particular "General" is just showing one US arrival with passengers in

GENERAL HARRY TAYLOR carrying displaced persons from German Ports, arrived
at New York, NY 17th July, 1950 with 1,019 passengers. I can't advise
about where to find the passenger list, but at least now you have a date to
work with.

Good Luck,
