In English, he would have been called a "presser". It was one of the
garment industry occupations, and possibly the origin of the name "Presser".

Re: pre-1938 Rymanow Jewish records #galicia

For what is worth. I extracted metrical data >from Konskie dated
1810-1825. These were mixed records (both Jewish and non-Jewish).
The registrar was either the priest or a person working for the priest.
My impression is that the records that you mention come >from the

Not an answer to your main question, but perhaps it helps a bit.

Schneiderman-Wein from Odessa #ukraine

Arthur M. Schneiderman
 

My paternal grandparents are Menashe Schneiderman (1869-1949) and Sarah
Wein
(1872-1969).They came to the US in 1913 and 1914. They had 10 children,
all but one born in the Ukraine. Sarah had two brothers who came to
the US,
David and Samuel. Menashe's parents are Isadore and Edith (surname
unknown). Sarah's parents are Aaron and Sofia Brungold. That's all that I
know about them.

I'm trying to find the rest of their siblings. I assume that theyboth came
from very large families (based on the large number of DNA matches to me).
Can anyone help or suggest possible resources?

The only other clue that I have is that one of their sons, Isadore,
lists his birthplace as Podolia, Ukraine.

You can contact me directly at

Hello,

I have several ancestors who attended medical schools in Germany prior to World War

information).

Feldwebel #general

rickglaser@...
 

My grandfather, Richard Glaser, was a Feldwebel in the Austrian Hungarian army in
World War 1. My understanding is that a Feldwebel is similar to a sergeant or a
staff sergeant - in other words, a non-commissioned officer. In one of the
postcards that he sent home to my grandmother, >from the army, he says that his
"boy" was captured by the Russians, and his orderly was injured. Was it typical for
a sergeant to have an orderly and/or a "boy"? I would have thought that this
would be a privilege of a regular officer.

Thanks,
Rick Glaser
