Carciumari #romania


DVORAHSV@...
 

Carciumari would probably be a pub keeper or tavern proprietor.

In Romanian, carciuma = public house, pub; tavern; saloon
The word carciumar in my dictionary = "publican " and add 'i' for
plural form
And the world carciumareasa = innkeeper (also the same word is the
plant 'zinnia')

Hope that helps, maybe others will confirm (I read passably in
Romanian, but not fluent and not a native speaker, so I rely heavily
upon the rom-eng dictionary which has "idiosyncrasies"...)

I've found some possible relatives through the Roumanian Business
Directory. Their profession was 'carciumari'. Is there anyone who can
tell me what that means?

Thanks a lot,

Dear Joke,

A 'carciumar' is a tavern-keeper. Carciumari is simply the plural form,
and as you say, you found several to whom that term was applied.

For all who are interested, do not forget that there is a list of
translations of Romanian to English Occupations terms available on
JewishGen. Go to the JewishGen Infofiles, and click on Romania. You
will find the link there.
