Is alien registration (9 digits with 'A') number same as the registration # (8 numbers without 'A') in the passport?

Asked over 3 years ago - San Francisco, CA

I have an immigrant visa & waiting for my physical green card so not sure about my Alien # or green card #. I need to apply for my child (under 21) before I get those documents. In form I-130, it asks for Alien registration number. I have the registration number printed on the immigrant visa page.

Additional information

It just says registration number : provides digit number. Registration # is underneath IV Case number.
