      I'd like to add something to the translations of Ebbel Brands.
      Landgebruiker is the one using the land distinct from the land owner.
      Gymnastiekleraar: gym teacher
      Groepsbegeleider could be a tour guide but it might be also a person having
      the supervision on a group of patients in a mental hospital or related
      Relatiebeheerder: employee of an insurance company controlling the contacts
      of the company with the clients.
      Technisch ambtenaar PTT: PTT did not only include the postal services but
      also telephone services.
      Uitvoerder is the lowest boss in the building trade, the man that does not
      Wagenwasser: probably an employee of the Railway Company washing carriages.

      Hello everyone,

      I hate to do this but I just translated and typed 63 pages of my family tree
      over the last couple of weeks, I still can't get in contact with my distant
      dutch cousin, and I need help translating several things. Most of them are
      occupations, if someone doesn't mind helping me out I'd appreciate it.

      landgebruiker (crop farmer?)
      planner (too obvious?)
      broodventer (bread...?)
      groepsbegeleider (tour guide?)
      technisch ambetenaar PTT
      wagenwasser (wagon washer?)

      woonde samen van Mei 1982 t/m 1989 te Amsterdam
      kantmelding d.d. Leeuwarden
      uitvoeder bij de Gemeente

      Dank u wel (Thank you very very much!)

      Paul Heerema
