Re: [SLOVAK-ROOTS] new SILHAVY/DOMIN info from Czech Archives
- A carter is someone who transports things by cart (a waggoner).
By manager, they might mean a manager of a noble's estate ("oekonom" or
"ekonom" in Latin).
"Chrostovksy" sounds like someone from the town of Chrostov, if there
is such a place. Bridl sounds German or Yiddish, which would often fit
for a miller.
