Russian Reader For Online Directory Look-up #translation
I'm hoping that someone who can read Russian would kindly look up something in old city directories at this website:
I assume that city directories of The Russian Empire would list business people in each town grouped under their occupation heading. The Galician directories did, as did U.S. directories.
I am looking for people who were in the business of dyeing, or cleaning and dyeing.
Everyone in this family wrote a different place of birth on every single piece of paper, hence the unusual mix of possible towns.
Time frame: 1880 to 1892
Occupation: dyer, or cleaner and dyer
BLUMENKRANZ / BLUMENKRANTZ
APPEL / EPPEL
BOBISH / BOBISCH
Brest / Brisk
Also looking for Pesach Ber (surname may or may not be BOBISH / BOBISCH.)
Pesach Ber was a cleaner and dyer, and lived in Kiev when he emigrated in 1914.
Pesach Ber was supposedly born in Vilna circa 1875. I do not know how long he lived in Kiev prior to 1914.
