Re: notation in 1900 Federal Census #general

Batya Olsen <batyao@...>
 

Dear Martha

The Population Center at the University of Minnesota has occupation
codes for several U.S. Censuses. The
URL http://www.ipums.umn.edu/usa/volii/90occtc.html lists 1900
occupation codes.

If I read this correctly, 017 is a farmer or farm worker.

Dynamic Map of Europe #general

Stephen B. Nathan <Steve@...>
 

Some time ago I saw on the web a computer that was a map of Europe that
changed as the borders of Europe changed over history. It was so
powerful that it was supposed to be required by all history students at
West Point.

Does anyone have any idea where to find it.

LERMAN found - 1911 Ireland Census #general

Shana Egan <segan@...>
 

It is sometimes difficult to obtain information >from the Irish census
because people were not listed as to where they lived, but by where they
physically were at the time of the census. Thus if someone was visiting a
friend at the time of the census, they would be listed with the friends
family, if you were at a business you would be listed with others at the
business, and so forth. Someone looking for a peddler could spend their
whole life looking for him in the census.

My other half is doing extensive research on his family in County Mayo. He
came across the following information in the 1911 Census. Since the name
sounds Jewish he thought one of you Genners might be interested in it.

Lerman, Abraham Joshua
Castletown, Lackan Parish, County Mayo, Ireland
Age 30
Single
Not Catholic
Could not read or write Irish or English
Occupation was a "Pedlor"
Born in Russia
Was visiting the home of Patrick and Julia Lynott at the time of
enumeration.
I hope this helps someone.

Katz and Katzeff #general

<< the Katz/Katzeff family >>

The likelihood, just going by the name, that Katz and Katzeff are one
family, is quite high. After all, if you wanted to abbreviate Katzeff and
keep it Jewish . . .

On the other hand, the Katzeff name's origin is in the Hebrew word Katzev,
meaning butcher, and Katz, an abbreviation for Kohen Tzedek (Priest of
Righteousness) is a common name for Kohanim. So, unless the butcher's family
are also Kohanim, Katz and Katzeff could be two very distincet families.

In general, therefore, unless you know for sure you're talking about the same
family, here's one "obvious" name change that should not be taken for granted.

3. they were better better educated or were skilled craftsmen, i.e. they

business relations with shadchanim in another 80. "She's 20 and not yer
married? You should really get in touch with Metschmecker; he'll find her a

that to the mathematicians--that they're all related one way or another.

==By about 1860, there were railroads in much of Europe and distance was no
