JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Viewmate 1747 - Clothing?Date? #general


Dear people,

Recently there was a discussion on clothing and how it may indicate where
the person lived or perhaps religious affiliation. Since I received no
responses the last time I posted this photo on viewmate, i thought I'd
try again.

The photograph is my gggf Ansel Asher SHEININ >from Mogilev or perhaps
Ukraine--farming colony. He was born in 1825 (about). Can someone offer
any ideas? Also, I'd like to know what the object is that he is leaning
on. Thanks very much.

( in the "To View" section - as
files - VM1747

Please respond to me personally unless you think the info might be of
general use.
