Occupations of Eastern European Jews 18th- 19th centuries #poland


Elaine Farran
 

As part of my family history research,I have been
trying to learn what life was actually like for our
"typical" ancestors (if there is such a thing), living
in Eastern Europe and specifically in Poland during
the 17th and 18th centuries. Is there a book or
website that can address this?

Also, in my research, I have learned that some of my
male anscestors engaged in the following occupations,
and would appreciate a translation and explanation of
the following:
wyrobnik
synkarc soli
przyrod
speklulant
handlarz
synklarz

Thank you
