If Otakar is a first name, could it have become Oscar?
Matias, Matijas, Matijeas, Matnas
According to Mourek's Old Bohemian Dictionary, a *stolar* is a carpenter
and *Otakar* is a first name.

Subject: Re: [TexasCzechs] Help in translating
I am making an index to all the names of the book, �migration to Texas
from the Mistek District", and I am running into translation problems.
Stolar and Otakar appears to be occupations. I found most of the words
in the Czech dictionary on line but not these 2. I also need help in
Now some of these names sound German or Russian to me and I guess that's
why they aren't in the dictionary. Any help anyone? I promise to share
once I am done.....This book is my bible and it seems to be the case
with most Fayette Co. Czechs. I feel the index will be helpful and it
certainly will not take away from buying the book. It will list what
page to find the name on and parents and spouses names if known. Just
another tool for a quicker looker upper.........lois
