These are pages 4-5 of the employment card of my paternal grandmother, Roza Molnar Farkas, nee Polnauer. My grandmother was born in Enying in 1873. Her father was Tivadar Polnauer, a shoemaker's assistant, her mother was Maria Hoffmann. Before her marriage my grandmother had probably been a maid, too, because her employment card was issued by the Papa trade authorities on 25th August 1896, based on the maid's card, also issued in Papa in 1892. She needed the employment card because between 25th and 30th October 1896 she worked as a knitter's assistant at Samu Weis' in Vagujhely. Her salary was 8 forints a month and full board. According to her marriage certificate she worked as a stockings knitter.
