Courland municipal/administative capital ? #courland #latvia

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Genners

Thanks for all your help tracing down the 1908 book about Courland Rabbonim, the
email journey has taken me >from here in Manchester to Israel, Stanford and
amazingly, finally to just across the Pennines in Leeds.

So now I have a copy of this very fragile book, more like a notebook really,
published 100 years ago, and possibly containing a reference to an ancestor of
mine who was head of the Courland Beth Din in the 1800s (Rabbi Eli Shlomo Shivka
Chaim BENSON/BENZION or similar)

There are three index/contents page which I am hoping to get translated, but in
advance of that I am wondering if anyone has any idea which town or city the
Courland Beth Din would have ben situated in the mid 1800s.

Many thanks as always

Polish Jewish occupations #poland

Avigdor Ben-Dov <a.bendov@...>
 

Thanks to one and all for the tremendous instantaneous spontaneous response!
I am overwhelmed.

Sadly, I am unable to access JewishGen and their tools and FAQs. Does
anyone know if they are still online? I don't think it is my PC, but I
don't know.

Avigdor Ben-Dov
Please! no more occupations--I am quickly RElearning Polish :) (again)

Wigdor RUTKIEWICZ

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Replies to Avigdor's initial query have provided
information on a number of resources for translating Polish occupations,
so this thread is ended. While the JewishGen website was offline for
a few days as a result of Hurricane Ike, it is now back up.

The occupations of immediate interest are:


krawiec - TAILOR; SEWER

piecznik - couldn't find anything
nauczciel - teacher
handlarz - SHOPKEEPER; TRADESMAN; HUCKSTER, trafficker
subiekt - salesman
kramarz - huckster
sluzba - service
farbiarz - - couldn't find anything
and kucharka - - couldn't find anything

Hope this helps a bit just the same.
BTW, there are several online English-Polish and Polish English
dictonaries, on top of google translate, for short line or simple
terms they are quite useful ...

Best regards

Avigdor,

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP has translated four Feepayer (Taxpayer) Lists
from the mid-1930s. Our translation spreadsheet for the 1935 Kremenets
Feepayer List lists occupations in Polish and English. To download the
spreadsheet, go to our Shtetlinks website

www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/translated-documents.html

Click on the "1935 Kremenets Feepayer List" in the menu. Open the file
and look at the tab labeled "Occupations". There you will see a list of
115 Occupations in Polish and in English.
