      I am learning a lot. Stolar literally means table maker in Czech while truhlar means chest maker. In essence carpenter would fit in our modern times. They used more precise terms in Cz. I was also told Otakar is a surname. The most famous Czech Premysl's King was Otakar. This little project is teaching me something also.....lois

      If Otakar is a first name, could it have become Oscar?

      I am making an index to all the names of the book, Ëmigration 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
      translating names.
