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
