Relatives from Kupel, Russia #general

Marilynn Bloom <michitradingco@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
I've been on JewishGen for many years and I am looking for records from
Kupel, Russia. Almost all my paternal family is >from there, and I have not
been able to find any info on Kupel. I belong to the Ukraine Sig group and I
believe there's still a Town Leader for Kupel, but so far nothing has been
published. I know there is a large group of Kupelians in NY, but that has
not been helpful for me. If there is anyone who could help me in my search,
I would truly appreciate it? Thanks so much.

Re: Occupation "Hauptcollecteur" of ancestor born in 1773 ? #germany

Irene Peters <iupfamilyresearch@...>
 

After looking it up on Google as 'Hauptkollekteur', it seems to have
been the senior-most position in a state-run or owned lottery.

A synonym would be 'Lotterieeinnehmer'. Apparently this profession dates
back to 1732. The Hauptkollekteur was responsible for selling
tickets/lots, notifying winners, etc. The money generated >from those
lotteries went into construction projects and other government
endeavors. See here (in German):
