Name APTEKARZ #poland


Harold Lewin
 

I would like to like thank all the kind people who replied to my query
on the Polish name Aptekarz. The generally agreed meaning is one who
dispenses drugs or medicines, i.e. druggist. In my wife's family the
name had become distorted into something like Uptekash but perhaps
that is nearer to the Polish pronounciation.
