Did it list that for all three people? Using ditto marks, or whatever? Or is
that combination of what it said for all three? Usually those columns just
show a couple of words for each person; I've never seen anyone have a
seven-word entry there.

This part is quite straighforward -- Julius is living in one of the
Berisowkas in Volhynia, and Ottilie is in one of the Warwarowkas.
The six-digit numbers, the word Shitomir and the date have nothing to do
with the relatives. Those entries refer to the passports issued to the
immigrants; that column is just to the right of the one asking about
