Abbreviation on Ellis Island Detention Form #general


Gail Marcus <ghmarcus@...>
 

I am trying to interpret an abbreviation on an Ellis Island detention
form. Before the name of the person to whom the immigrant is being
released, I see what looks like the abbreviation "Fd" in a couple of
cases.

The JewishGen page on the detention records does not list this
abbreviation. It lists "RR" for people being sent to their relatives
by rail. Is "Fd" an indication of people being sent to relatives some
other way? If so, how?

Would appreciate any explanation of this.
