Re: Specific meaning of "ploshch" in Yiddish and/or Russian #general

Stan Goodman <SPAM_FOILER@...>
 

On Sun, 6 Jun 2004 20:48:35 UTC, Dick@Plotz.Com opined:

After many years of idle speculation, I am finally closing in on
the exact origins of my family name. The name, which appears on
my great-grandfather's Russian army discharge papers as "PLOTZ or
PLOST", >from Pazelva, now Zelva, near Ukmerge, former Kovno
Guberniya, Lithuania, appears in Beider under PLOST as arising
from "ploshch", meaning, in Yiddish, a "double seam". This seems
reasonable enough to me, although there is no family tradition of
any tailors, and it's easy to see how "ploshch" could be
transcribed as either PLOTZ or PLOST.

I'm trying to determine just what would be meant by the term
"ploshch" in Yiddish or perhaps in Russian, which would seem to be
the likely origin of the Yiddish term. My daughter, a costumer
and fiber artist, is unfamiliar with the term "double seam," and
suggests that it might refer to either a French seam or a flat-
felled seam, which are oversewn for appearance or for strength,
respectively. The difference might give some indication of what
kind of tailor my ancestors were.

For what it's worth: In Russian, "ploshche" means "flatter" (comparative of
"flat").

Are list members aware of www.raogk.org? This is an acronym for "Random
Acts of Genealogical Kindness." You may volunteer to help people, or you
may request assistance. It has been of good assistance to me in obscure
places.

Good luck.
