The place of the marriage looks like it says "the city Hamel" and judging from the Cyrillic print at the bottom of the paper (which I don't read) I would assume the general area is either Russia or Ukraine. Searching on the townfinder you find Homyel Belarus which seems most likely.

Hi, Everybody                                                          14th August 2020

I wonder if I may politely record my thoughts--about --' cutter''

In my understanding, it can be a 'glass cutter'   plain sheets of glass being cut to fit widows /french windows etc.

It was /is? a very skilled/ dangerous  profession/job--

I observed --from a 'safe distance' my late father 'cutting' glass' etc--wearing 'protective' 'face shields' --fragments--dust-- of pieces of glass were 'flying' everywhere.

Best wishes to All

Re: Can anyone figure the surname of Rauchlese out? #names

Reuven Mohr
 

it depends in which context this name appears.
There is a small town in Hessen, SE of Fulda by the name Reichlos.
From there obviously a Jewish family originated, using different spellings, like Reichloser, Reichloeser (ö Umlaut) or Reichleser. Such a family resided in Herrnsheim near Worms for several generations.

The city was Homel. The date was Tues. Sivan 12. The year is not completely clear, i.e. the decade, but I think it was 5662 which was June 17, 1902. Definitely not 5682 when Sivan 12 fell on a Thursday. (And not 5683 when Sivan 12 when was Sunday, and Sivan 13 was Monday).

Re: MSTISLAVSKY from Chernigov #ukraine

Lin Mor
 

Lisa, Have you come across the name Amchislavsky in your research? Amchislav or Omchislav is the Yiddish name for the town Mstislavl, located in the Mogilev Region, Eastern Belarus. I have yet to discover definite proof, but my theory is that at some point in time, before the Napoleonic Code requiring last names was enacted in the early 1800's, a number of Jewish families left Mstislavl to live in Chernigov and Poltava. When last names became required, some chose a place name. Mstislavsky, with -sky at the end, quite possibly means they they came from that place. (You may already know this.) I am sorry that I have no help for your immediate question, but may I suggest that you ask on the Ukraine SIG as well as UKR-Chernigov@... may have suggestions. I did look unsuccessfully on the Jewishgen Ukraine database,
