My educated guess would say that dis means discharged .
On my grandmother's ship manifest, written by hand across the columns
19-24, is something that I need help with. The words look like 'Dis to
Baden'. Many other passengers on this sheet had similar notations, Dis
to Son, Dis to Bro, Dis to Father, Dis to Husb. Can anyone tell me what
these notations mean?
For what it is worth, in column 18 (Whether going to a relative or
friend) it clearly states that she is going to her husband at the
address where they lived for a number of years.
Thank you for all your help
