*Bet Ayin He Mem Khet
Ba'al Hamechaber i.e. "the author of..."(followed by the name of a book)

This has been discussed in the past, and has been interpreted as sgan
lviah or sgan likehuna, but in any case indicated a levite and is the source of the surname Segal.

emigrant medical exams #general

SBSeales
 

Dear Jewishgenners,
I received a passenger manifest >from 1892 for a ship departing >from Hamburg
to New York. Included was a separate document signed by a United States
Consular Agent, certifying that the steerage passengers had been medically
examined in Cuxhaven, Germany before boarding the ship. Would anyone like to
comment on why only steerage passengers were examined, and why they would have
been examined before departure, and then again on arrival in the U.S.? Did
every country having a U.S. Consulate do this?
Happy Thanksgiving to those in the U.S.

Perhaps David could tell us how he believes the A'YIN should
be pronounced, giving us a number of examples in Hebrew, and
