JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Origin of the name "KATZOFF" #general

Most sources give the Hebrew version (**not** Yiddish) of KATZAV which means
butcher. Someone in my family believes that in a Slavic language it has
something to do with lumber, which was ancestors' profession (rather that
butchery).

Can anyone confirm the lumber connection?

TIA
