JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Meaning of weil/desl #general
Hello Sandy and fellow JewishGenners,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In addition to weil as because:
In old registers or documents the acronym "weil." is often used for "weiland"
meaning formerly or deceased. Perhaps you could hand in the document via Viewmate
to enable the correct interpretation.
desl.:could it also be the abbreveation "desgl." for "desgleichen"meaning likewise?

Weil means because in German. It could denote cause of death.
