Surname and question #belarus

Anyone researching names AGRANAT, AGRANT, MAGALIF, MAGALIFF...have many
branches, not yet connected. Am new to this, so bear with me. Do you know
an honest and reasonably-priced researcher in Belarus? Most say my Agranat
name (Kohanim)came >from Aharon-at and is Ashkenazy; some say it was
originally Al-Grenada (>from Grenada) and thus Sephardic. Any suggestions on
how to figure out which it may be? Paula Hurwitz

Re: LISTING SURNAMES BEING SEARCHED #belarus

In a message dated Sat, 16 Mar 2002 Carol asks:

Is there a way to type these names out once and save them in
some way so you don't have to do it for every posting. I have a LOT of
names and towns!

My suggestion: If you are using MS Outlook as your mail reader/composer,
you can create a signature to use at the bottom of your e-mails. It can be
found under "Tools, Options, Mail Format". I have 2 signatures set up, one
for "regular" mail and the other, which includes my list of towns and
surnames for "SIG" e-mails (which you can see below). That way, I just pick
the proper signature (right on the button bar of the message I'm writing)
when I create an e-mail. If I need to modify the lists with additional
information (I should be so lucky!), I just change it once in my "SIG"
signature. I suspect other mail programs have a similar feature, but
Outlook is the one with which I'm most familiar.

IF you have Outlook, it may be simpler than our moderator's notepad
suggestion (also valid), since it's all within the mail program, and avoids
having to open another file in Notepad, copy and paste.

Hope this helps!

EIDB Ship Manifest #belarus

Crh2719@...
 

Hi,
I have learned a great deal >from reading the SIG emails. I hope someone can
help me with information on my mother's ship manifest. Her entry was crossed
out, with the letters S.I. and deported next to her name. I found the
manifest page titled Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry at the end of
the ship's passenger listings. Next to her name is written Ret >from Hosp
(date) ?.C.D. Trachoma. In Hosp. At the end of the line it states she was
deported on the same ship 3 days after her arrival. I cannot decipher the
letter (?) before C. D. Does anyone know what the first letter might be, and
what they mean? Also I don't remember ever hearing her, or anyone in the
family mention that she was sick and deported. I cannot find her name listed
on the EIDB again at a later date. Is it possible that there additional
pages to the ship manifest that may have listed her being readmitted after
all? I didn't think to look any further after I found the page with her name
on it.
I would appreciate any ideas or information. Thanks

Can someone translate this word for me.
It appears on vital statistic information and I don't know the meaning, I think it may mean "citizen" but maybe not.

Thank you.
