GaliciaSIGgers is a 1901 business directory for Przemysl, located at:

http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=2447&;dirids=4

I have not thoroughly examined this, but it seems to contain many clearly
Jewish names, and many references to other Galician towns. Perhaps,
someone
with better knowledge of Polish can better describe its contents.
Wow!!
Another incredible finding!

May I add clarification, please. This is not town Przemysl directory but
1901 Directory for the entire industry of Galicia. Confusion arised >from the
identical spelling in English of town Przemysl and word Przemysl (written in
Polish with the 'broken' letter 'l') which translates as industry.

This directory was published by the Krakow Committee of the First Congress
of the Industrialists.

Page 5 provides Index for Directory content, it lists ten principal
industrial categories:

I. Constructions
II. Quarries
III. Pulp and Paper
IV Alcohol distillation
V Food
VI Forestry and woodworking
VII Printing
VIII Weaving
IX Mining, Oil & Gas, Crude Oil Refining
X Chemical
XI Steel mills
XII Machinery
XIII Leather
XIV Garment
XV Mineral and Soda Water
XVI Glass and Porcelain
XVII Gardening
----------------------------------
In the Directory pages listing follows the index but surnames of the
businessmen and names of the company are mixed together, tough in the
alphabetical order till page 54.

Another index describing in more details products is located on page 55 to
page 64 incl. It make references back to the industrial categories. Pages 64
till 130 (the last one) are occupied by the industrial adds which I have
enjoyed tremendously while reading.

Polish Occupations #galicia

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Hi everyone,

A few of the family members I have found in the 1902 Lwow city directory
<http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=2457&;from=globalsearch&dirids=4>
have occupations that I can't figure out, and I was hoping someone else
could!

My gg grandfather Pinkas KALISCH is listed as a "fakt. pien." I assume the
"fakt." is an abbreviation for faktor, but I don't know what the "pien."
stands for.
and
Two of my cousins ACHT are listed as fabrykant korkow i wl realn.

Thanks for any clarification you can give me on these occupation names.

Hi all,

Not only does the Digital Library of Wielkopolska include a digitized
version of the 1912 Galicia Telephone Directory, but it also includes a
plethora of other digitization projects -- such as the 1902 Lwow
Directory, which I found by searching around the catalog for items
including the word "Lwow." The catalog entry for the Lwow 1902 directory
can be found at
<http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=2457&;from=globalsearch&dirids=4>.
I can't give too many helpful hints, as I don't speak Polish or German,
the dual languages the directory is printed in. I've just been browsing
by page number - and can tell you that
* >from page 7 to 103 seems to be an alphabetical by last name directory
* >from page 103 to 151 is organized by type of business

I've already found entries for my KALISCH and ACHT families, and I hope
that others find some helpful information here as well.

Congratulations, Rebecca! What a finding! This is indeed an incredible
source.

Just to add to Rebecca'a posting a few words.


Part 1 includes in the alphabetical order surnames, first names, positions,
titles and street addresses of ALL city of Lwow residents (by this, book
means the principal residents of the household).

Part 2 is actually a 1902 town Business Directory. In the Index it lists
professions/occupation in the alphabetical order with corresponding page
#'s.

BTW. Directory says that Lwow had 169,870 residents and 10,326 military
personnel at the publication time.


Thanks again, Rebecca.

These are clearly English speakers applying English grammatical structures
to a foreign word. This happens all the time in all languages and is one of
the ways foreign words ultimately become non-foreign words. It happens all
the more readily when it is a word like "landsman" which "looks like" an
English word.

:-) new Irish database - a St. Patrick's Day gift from Boston College #general

pweinthal@...
 

Top O' The Mornin' to You!

Today, on St. Patrick's Day, Boston College is placing online a
database that will you help you track down Irish immigrant ancestors.
The database covers 90 years of ''Missing Friends'' classified ads
placed in Boston's Roman Catholic newspaper "The Pilot" between 1831 to
1921. Families were separated during the great Irish migration.
Husbands preceded wives, siblings were separated, mothers followed
after children. By the time the rest of the family arrived in Boston,
earlier arriving Irish immigrants had moved on to follow jobs working
on the railroads or the canals, their whereabouts unknown.

Tens of thousands of ads were placed; it's estimated 75% led to
successful reunions. The database is an electronic version of the
eight-volume publication ''The Search for Missing Friends: Irish
Immigrant Advertisements Placed in the Boston Pilot,'' which Boston
College Professor Ruth-Ann M. Harris researched and edited for the New
England Historic Genealogical Society.

The website -- ''Information Wanted'' can be found at:

http://infowanted.bc.edu/

Anticipating a deluge of hits - especially in the Irish Mecca of Boston
- the university's information and technology department has put
resources in place to handle the volume of inquiries

Can someone please tell me what the phrase "Chederim M'toknim" means? (Mem

in Poland and the translation I was given was "fixed rooms" but that doesn't
make sense.
