Occupations #general

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello and thank you everyone
In connection my question with the "occupations" I see no need to
detail the example I mentioned:
Zalman Geller, married in 1859, his marriage record he is "laborer"
In 1861 a child is born, the father birth record he is "szpektor" (supervisor?)
In 1864 he had another child. Birth records father he is "belfer" (teacher)
In 1868 he had another child, and this time he again "szpektor" (supervisor?)
What is the explanation?
Thank you very much
David Nesher

Meaning of "occupations" vital records #general

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
As a researcher, I'm trying to get as much information out dry words I
find vital records (BMD).
One of the common information listed there is a "Occupation". This is
a detail that might provide information that is not only technical,
but also gives information about a person's life in which we are
interested.
But, the question that concerns me, how this data record is at all serious.
Is occupations listed in the certificate are true generally, or they
just delivered to the clerk recorded the certificate - formal needs?
For example, one family member had found some of his certificates,
registered for another job each time (some of the overlapping years,
not different periods).
Here is one example: Once: "szpektor" (supervisor?)
Another time: "belfer" (teacher)
Another time: laborer
This is what I remembered now, there are more extreme.
Do we know anything about the way the Jews treated these records? Do
they try to provide true information when there was no reason to lie,
or was that just lip service to to the authorities?
My question is comprehensive, but primarily on the records of Poland
and Galicia 19th century.
Would love to hear your opinion

Viewmate Request (German translation) #general

Hi, All,

I just posted an image on View Mate ---VM50029
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=50029

This image is the notation area at the end of a Nowy Sacz, Poland 1898 birth
entry for Biene Mariem BIRNBAUM-FREI.

If you can translate this note (>from German to English) it would be
appreciated. It looks like 2 separate events occurred prior to the birth of
this child. Also, it appears the nearby town of Stary Sacz is mentioned.

Thanks,
Debbie Raff
