From what i have discovered, Jews were not allowed to live in these cities in the 19th century. If the did it wss because they worked for a wealthy or politically or military family.

My reply:
My grandfather was a capmaker, unlikely to have had influential patrons. His second child (my mother's older sister) is recorded as having been born in Saint Petersburg in 1896. The family is also listed in the 1897 First All Russian Census as living in S.P.  The family emigrated to England in 1898.
