A and J Alschwang Bros. store in Moscow #lithuania

Linda Kelley
 

There's a lovely photo online showing the facade of A. & J. Alschwang
Bros. "Maison de Blanc" department store, taken about 1917 in Moscow.
The store sold men's and women's clothing, cosmetics, and white goods
[linens].
http://www.agefotostock.com/age/en/Stock-Images/Rights-Managed/MEV-10634461

Does anyone know who the brothers A. and J. Alschwang were, if they
were related to the Lithuanian Alschwangs, and if they resided in
Moscow?

Thank you!

Hi

In May 2015 I traveled to central Ukraine to follow my families trail. I
took pictures of as many gravestones I could in Sokolovka,
Holoskove, Konetspol, Talnoye, and Pervomaysk. Would these be of any
value to people in this SIG? Many are hard to read. Very depressing. Many are
vandalized. If it can be of use, please let me know.

Occupation boucher in Alsace records #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

I am sorry it's taken me so long to thank everyone for the responses
to my question on GerSIG about the occupation "boucher". I really do
appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

This is the response that made the most sense to me. I thought you too
might like to see it:

"In those days there were no vast slaughtering factories; individuals
would slaughter animals pretty much out of the yards around their homes
and sell to wholesalers who in turn would supply armies."

My question was:
In researching my LOEB family in Reichshoffen, Alsace, I found many of
the records listed their occupation as boucher.
Do any of you have any insight on what the term "boucher" might have
meant in the period 1793-1882?
