[...] So could BROD and BROTMAN be the same name? Or were the recordsWell it could, however:
BROD probably means someone >from one of the many places called Brod,
as Brod is a common Slavic toponym, meaning "ford" [= a shallow place with
good footing, where a river or stream may be crossed by wading, riding or
BROTMAN, imho, would be Yiddish for "bread-man",
so a baker or seller of bread.
Not quite the same, isn't it.
