Not so simple! I ignore the newfangled response options and use
"reply to all". That bring up main@...
twice for some unknown reason, so I delete one of them. I then look
for the email of the sender and ensure that this, too, is in the
"Address To:-" location

I do not know the proportion of readers who get messages as a
digest. I prefer individual messages so that I can easily
discard or relocate the individual ones.
I also copy and paste as "quoted " the message to which I am
reacting, so that the reader can see what I am writing about
Hash tags are something I have never learned, so until someone teaches
me, I use none, in the same way I have done for decades.

I apologise for the omission. I
clicked the link 'reply to this
message' and also used the same subject line as the query in my
response. Unfortunately that wasn't picked up. Perhaps I should have
used a hashtag? . If we gave the number of the digest and the number
of the message we are replying to, this would not cater for the people
who receive each message as it is posted. Could each message posted
have a unique reference number? That might be a simple solution and easy
to implement. . I'd like to avoid receiving the same conversations many
times in my inbox, each iteration longer than the last. Inboxes get
cluttered up enough already.. Unique reference numbers would also
become long and unwieldy, but we start the numbering afresh every

- It is possible that the document was prepared for some unpleasant
purpose. However, in that case I'm surprised that it still exists, and
wasn't destroyed by its owner to avoid the post-war Nazi hunt. It's more
likely that the list was made for an interested genealogist.
- Genealogy was a popular pastime for middle-class men in the 1930s.,
and I have a similar document sent to my great-uncle, who was very
interested in the history of the family. My father inherited this list,
together with his uncle's hobby and used the information he'd collected
to good effect to find relatives abroad to help with our emigration. In
fact my very elderly grandmother's visa to England was from along-lost
nephew on her family tree.
