Considering the depth of expertise of this group, let me ask you a question
(or two?)
I went over the list of small businesses in Bucovina to get a feel for what
people were doing early in the Twentieth Century. There are some 900 entries
and I am hard pressed to find any non Jewish names. This is not advertised
as a list of "Jewish" businesses. Should I draw the obvious conclusion. On a
more personal note, there are two Spinner entries in Czernowitz, one is
clearly my grandfather Nuchim Spinner, the other, E. Spinner could be my
grandmother. There are very few entries where the first name is simply an
initial. Does anybody know why an initial would be used. Is there another
data base somewhere where I could corroborate this entry, if not, I will
simply claim E. Spinner as my bubby.
