Jews in the Liquor Industry #general

Martin Green <btestware@...>
 

There was a recent discussion in this group about
the role of Jews in the liquor industry in the old
country. Beer and alcohol were indeed very much
Jewish-dominated business in much of Russia. The
memoirs of Yekhezkel Kotik contain many anecdotes
about Jews in the liquor business. There is a complete
English translation of Kotik's memoirs available on the
internet, done by Dutch translator Lucas Bruyn It
is a fascinating book full of stories about Jewish life
in White Russia, Poland and the Ukraine in the late
19th century. If anyone is interested, they can email
me privately and I would be glad to send them the link.

If you mean the New York State Assembly, then the 7th District today
encompasses a large part of Suffolk County, Long Island, New York,
including the town of West Islip. The district may have encompassed other
areas in previous years.

The current assemblyman for the 7th District is Thomas F. Barraga, who was
first elected to the Assembly in the 1982 General Election.

Thomas F. Barraga has a webpage online at:

...which might be useful. He also has an address listed at:

Maybe you could write to him and see if he's heard of your grandfather?

Re: Beifel as Surname and as Given name -corrected #general

Barbara <maybug@...>
 

Sorry there were a few words ommitted in my previous posting here
corrected, the substance is unchanged but may make a little more sense. I
have capitalized them to spare you the search if you are interested in
pursuing this issue. Thanks.

I have been watching with interest the discussions of names, hoping that
names I am interested in might come up. They have not. So I have another
entry for consideration: The family name BEIFEL is an uncommon one and is
not listed in either of Beider's volumes of Jewish names in the Polish and
Russian Empires. Further, many of the listings I have found on the WEB -
Christian Brothers and youth groups, etc. are not Jewish. `There is even a
photo of three Japanese youth sitting around a table! The one definitely
Jewish listing is on the 1816 Revision list where I found BEIFEL as a first
name of the head of household in Michalewski, Klucz and as his son's
patronymic.

I had begun to wonder until I found the Revision list cited above whether
Beifel was not an example of a sea change name.

I would be appreciative of any input >from others who are knowledge about
Jewish given names and surnames.

Thank you,

Barbara Harris

This assumption is correct, but it is not a town in the "Warsaw area"
but Warsaw proper where this photograph was taken, because
"Marzalkowska" is one of Warsaw's main streets which is also supported
by "A Varsovie" which is French and means "in Warsaw" in English.

Marszalkowska is the name of one of the main roads running north south
through the centre of Warsaw. It runs near the main railway station.
Varsovie is the French for Warsaw.

Re: where was 111 Marszalkowska #general

It is indeed in "the Warsaw area": "Varsovie" is what the French call
Warsaw (which is what English speakers call Warszawa). "Marszalkowska"
is a main boulevard in downtown Warsaw. The photographer, no doubt
from pretentions to "class", chose to put his name and address on his
work in French, the prestigious language of the day.
