Sheindl and Guizi Sherman #poland

Ruth & Bruce Lynn <lynn33@...>
 

Hello,

A friend is looking for two sisters who entered the US through the port
of Boston. She only knows their Yiddish names, Sheindl and Guizi
Sherman. I've been unable to find them in census or ship records.
Could anyone suggest some English translations for "Sheindl" and
"Guizi"?

Thanks very much.

Re: Purchasing Power of the Russian Ruble in 1882 #lithuania

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends

Ralph Salinger asked what was the purchasing power of the Ruble in 1882.

Browsing through historic Jewish press >from that year yields the following.

* A book cost about 1 Ruble (and a three volume book - 2.5 Ruble).
* An yearly subscription to a weekly Hebrew newspaper was 4 - 6 Ruble.
* A resident teacher who would also serve as the house ritual slaughter was
offered 12 Ruble per month plus accomodation and a table.
* A Synagogue usher in a small town was paid nearly half a Ruble per week.
* A major settlement initiative was estimated at 150,000 Ruble, equal to
15,000 English pounds.
* To enter America, a family would need to show it had 100 Ruble, whereas a
single person - 50 Ruble (as per Russian Hebrew press >from 1882).
