GerSIGgers:
I have been working my way through an article by Roland Paul on the Jews of
Goellheim, the home for at least a century of my STRAUS forebears. He
makes frequent use of the phrase "X Tagwerk Y Dezimal," as an apparent
measure of the value of possessions, where X and Y are numeric values. Can
anyone out there explain what this connotes?
Thanks,
