JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Viewmate interpretation Cursive "G" #general


I've posted a section of a passenger list for a Holland America ship sailing >from
Boulogne-Sur-Mer in 1898. Line 2 clearly looks like the Grimberg or Grienberg
family. Line 20 (not shown) also has a surname starting with the same letter,
however, lines lines 8 and 10 have an upper case "G" but it's a completely
different form.

I'm wondering whether in France (embarkation) or Holland (ship line) they used two
different forms of the "G" to indicate a different sound, whether line 2 is not a
'G' at all, or whether it's just a steward who went back and forth on how he made
his "G".

Please respond on viewdata or privately.
Thank you,
