I am almost certain the "David Sizen" I found in the New Haven
1905 City Directory is my mother's father, David Season who was a
jeweler. He is listed the directory as "Sizen David Jeweler, bds,
663 Howard Avenue." Question: What does bds" mean?

Question-2: In 1906 David Sizen appears again. This time the
listing reads, "Sizen David Rem to New York." Can someone kindly
tell me what "Rem" refers to? A few years later he reappears in
New Jersey. Does "Rem" mean "moved" or "removed?"

Thanks in advance.
