Information about shochets, mashgiachs #hungary


Jake Jacobs
 

Is there any compilation of information about shochets or masgiachs, either in the US or in Hungary? Several of my ancestors were shochets or mashgiachs, one in the U.S. (arrived Phila. 1887, immediately moved to Indianapolis); others in Hungary (one born Hernadszentandras 1847, worked as shochet probably in Celldomolk; another born Olaszliszka 1841, not sure where he worked, perhaps Olaszliszka). I have not found any documentation of their work itself, my information is based on oral family histories.

Does anybody have suggestions on where I might find documentation of any kind, other than censuses? Much appreciated --

I know that in the U.S. during the 1930s, there were kosher butchers' union=
s, associations, etc. If you can search the local Jewish newspaper online,=
it might lead you to further information.
