Re: Occupation - 'spekulant' in Polish #general

In our "house German" mixed with yiddisch and Russian, it literally meant
"speculator", trader, money broker, businessman.

My best regards.

Dear Fellow Researchers,
Can anyone tell me what occupation is meant by 'Spekulant' which appears
in
a Polish birth certificate dated 1864 >from Zawichost. The father who was
23
at the time has this occupation.

Thanks

My grandfather put Romania as country of origin on his first papers in
1883, and Russia on his second papers in 1888. What might that mean?
Has anyone had that experience? Would "country of origin" mean place of
birth, necessarily?
TIA.

Good luck with your searches.

Levi and Cohen #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

I'd like to thank everybody who responded to my question about whether
someone whose last name was Cohen would be likely to be called Levi. The
unanimous answer was that there is no Halakhic reason he couldn't be,
and further that it isn't especially uncommon. I'd like particularly to
thank David Ziants and Udi Cain for trawling the Jerusalem phone book
and Israel yellow pages in pursuit of a substantiated answer for me.

For the record, it now appears that my great-grandfather was indeed a
man named Levi Cohen who is named in the Winnipeg census for 1901
together with my grandfather and various great aunts and uncles. (There
were only 29 people named Cohen in Winnipeg in that year, so the chances
of getting the wrong man were pretty slim.) There's more about him that
I'd like to share with the group once I have confirmed a few more facts.

Canadian 1901 Census #general

A general note for anyone with Canadian ties: it appears that
ancestry.com are gradually making the Canadian 1901 Census available
free on a city by city basis. They've put three different cities'
censuses on their site since the beginning of November.

Dear Rhoda,

Are you sure you've got your dates right? As they stand, your
grandfather was 75 when he married your grandmother. Some guy.

My 80 year old father has asked me to try and trace our family history
and hopefully any living relatives. I have very little info - only that

my Grandfather was born in Odessa approx 1845, was in Russian army,
posted to Belgium in 1915 and then came to UK in same year where he met
and married my grandmother in London approx 1919/20/21. Only thing I
could think of was to send off for his marriage certificate but where do

I go next? Would be grateful for any help.

Thanks for the help :)

I am entered in JGFF.
I am seeking both contemporaries and info on ancestors.
Contemporaries if they exsist would be nice.
I have checked the JewishGen archives.
I have checked FTJP.
I have checked the Hamburg Passenger indexes.
I have checked the Social Security Death Index.
I have read the JewishGen FAQ.

However, where might I find the US census records?
Are they available online?

Thanks again for all of the help and suggestions.
It really is appreciated.

I have received at least a dozen translations of my dad's 1925 entry papers
into Eretz Israel, some with a social and political history. I am most
grateful for JewishGen's service and the assistance of the readers of this
