Tranlations #poland


SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

I don't know the exact translations, but I was told that any word ending in
RZ indicates a profession. I had the same problem, and solved it by getting
hold of a Polish - English dictionary. In this way, I found out that my
GGfather and GGGgfather were both glaziers >from the word "sclarz" in vital
records. I'm sure the liberal arts library at your college could provide
one. Good luck. Sheila Toffell

According to my modern Polish dictionary:

nauczyciel = teacher
zarzadca = administrator, manager
fabryka =factory, works, mill, plant
kupiec = merchant, tradesman, dealer

The other one is tough. The closest word is kamasz which means gaiter.
Maybe it was colloguial based on a type of person that wore fancy pants???
