Re: Occupation boucher in Alsace records #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary asked what the term "boucher" might have meant in
the period 1793-1882.

The University of Chicago has a website, Dictionnaires d=E2=80=99autrefois,
with French dictionaries of the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th
centuries.[https://artfl-project.uchicago.edu/content/dictionnaires-dautrefois]
For the period in question, "boucher" seems to mean simply butcher.

It is defined as someone who slaughters animals and/or sells their
meat. It was also used figuratively for a cruel, bloodthirsty person,
but that certainly would not be its meaning when given as an
occupation. [One dictionary mentions "boucher" used as a verb meaning
to repair gilt work, but there is no indication that the word was ever
used as a noun to describe the occupation of glider.]

Re: vital record entry- Occupation "Boucher" #germany

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Hello,
I checked this in "Le Monde" newspaper
The term "Boucher" appears to come >from the Italian language via the
Provencal dialect "beccaio" meaning male goat. So it would seem that
the term applies only to butchers because it comes >from the term
"killer of goats".

Also, please do not forget that exactitude was not always a worry for
the minor officials in charge of registering people in the town halls. This
would have been the case even more so with minorities.

I hope that this helps.

Too many butchers in Alsace [Re: boucher] #germany

So many alleged butchers?

Alsace was German at the time, so my own
g'grandfather in Swabian Germany may be relevant.

My mother recalled that he was a "Sailer" rope-maker -- because
everyone had to have a trade, In fact he was a trader...

I too have the same interest. I had always believed one line of my

(Dvinsk). Indeed, after uncovering the address of my 2nd great
grandmother in Kraslava, I visited (twice now).

But, more recently, I have learned that the family moved >from Kowno
(Kaunas) to Kraslava some time in the 1880s for reasons unknown.
Contemporaneously, a large number of the family emigrated to the US.

I can only assume that some political or natural event caused the
sudden migration. I intend to investigate.
