Re: [S-R] Re: TRANSCRIPTION PLEASE - "ZUPA XX"
- Thank you for this - you're never too old to learn! In fact, the ship's
manifest was for the year 1929, however, perhaps the immigrants were more
familiar with the old term and automatically used that when giving their place
of origin. Just a guess, but I never noticed the term "okres" anywhere for that
year on the manifest, and unfortunately I only copied a part of the film so
cannot be sure it wasn't used elsewhere.
