Objet : [h-sig] TRANSLATION OF WORD PLEASE

... It's in German and can be found at
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html and it's file VM7046.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

It would look very much like the German word "Kreisler" (cereal trader) if
there wasn't that loop in between the "s" and the "l".

Then again, the loop might be a "z", "sz" doesn't alter the German
pronunciation, fits the Hungarian one and "Kreiszler" seems to be a quite
common surname in Hungary. The "Hungarian" spelling might have had an
identical meaning once, my own Hungarian isn't good enough to tell.

Best regards.
