Gaining Skills at young ages away from home #hungary

CASHEL3776@...
 

In the US, it was not unusual for a young boy to leave his family to learn a
trade.

My gg-grandfather Russell in Tennessee was a Master Potter. He was
apprenticed to a potter/pottery at age 7, leaving his own family behind in
Virginia. This was in 1811. His own son left at age 9 in 1846 to apprentice
with a glassmaker in North Carolina. Neither ever saw their families again. A
little akin to going off to college and never returning, but at a later age.
His pottery mark can be found at several Museums and University colections of
Red clay pottery.

It was also probably why he and his son died fairly young. Both the pottery
and the glass was made with lead. Think of the horror now of all that might
have died >from lead poisoning >from what they unknowingly made.

==You're probably thinking of Uriah (same Hebrew spelling, Ori and Uri are
essentially interchangable) the Hittite, general for King David and the name
means "God is my light"; another forms of the name is Uriyahu (same meaning).
More common today is Uri, "my light."

The name Uri/Uriah is often twinned with the yiddish name
Fayvish/Fiebieg/Phoebus and variants, and with the Aramaic name Shraga.

Nine Crazy Kids #yiddish

Karen Westerman <kwest@...>
 

Hello,

I am new to this SIG. My grandmother and one of
her brothers (Beatrice and Samuel LIBERMAN) were
members of an act called The Nine Crazy Kids. I
believe, also, that Samuel had a stage name Samuel
LEROY. He may have been in a silent film called
"The Rabbi".

Any information you may have is appreciated.

Documents from the Ukraine #general

Dear Genners,

I am trying to reach the Ukranian Consulate in
Chicago. Their telephone hours are 3-4pm Mon, Tue,
Thur, and Fri, and 9-12 on Wed. So far, I have been
unable to reach anyone. They have a handy list of
where to write for documents for all former members of
the Soviet Union that are independent countries, along
with a form that you can print out. I am confused
over the fees. Are these the fees for documents on
people that are still living? If you write directly
to an address for your ancestor's documents, can you
receive a reply directly and avoid the consular fee of
$40. I would greatly appreciate the help of anyone
from the Chicago area to find this out. Susan Farb,

My own grandmother gave specific instructions not to name any boys
after her. But that was a personal request, not based on anything
traditional.
