Hello, I am interested in learning about the types of employment opportunities available for Jews in the Pale of Settlement. I know that in some areas Jews were not permitted to serve as civil servants with the government. I don't think these restriction were homogeneous throughout the Pale of Settlement. I thought there are merchants and tavern keepers in some places as well. Is there a Wiki on Jewish employment opportunities by city? I know that I have relatives who were tailors and carpenters. I also had relatives who were Rabbis. I'm interested in mid-late 1800s and 1900 - WWII

For now I am looking at the following,

Mogilev-na-Dniepr, Belarus
Minsk
Kozelets, Ukraine
Yasi, Romania
