Re: Jews employed by the Czars #russia

My maternal grandfather was employed by Czar Nickolas as a beaurocrat in his village of Yurovichi in Belarus with responsibilities including postmaster and director of official documents and his family owned the means of moving cargo and passengers within his geographical area. He was able to permit HIMSELF to leave his home in 1914 to travel to a nearby city large enough to have a teaching program to make him a shochet and a butcher in order to bring a useful skill in his emigration to America. He returned home 4 years later to bring his immediate family to New Jersey where he had established himself with a house for them. There are many interesting tales of what occurred during those 4 years but those will only be told on demand.
