German abbreviation "led."
- Cindy, thanks a million for this.
Now that I see it written out, I remember seeing it in later entries on
the Hamburg departures lists, too.
May I ask one more question about the Wuerttemberg list? I forgot to
ask this yesterday. Another line on the entry for Johann Jakob Weber,
says: "Anzahl Kinder 1;" (Number of children 1) I don't think he
was traveling with a child, so would this refer to the fact that he
himself was under 21? (He'd have been 19, based on birthdate and
departure date, though I think I've also found his ship manifest,
arriving in NY a few weeks later and age given as 21 there).
