Re: [bukowsko_triangle] Gemeindelexikon Column Heading Translations
I can honestly say lamb was NEVER on my family's menu (nor was it ever
on the menu at any ethnic church suppers I went to as a child back in
Minersville, PA). In fact I never even tasted it until adulthood when I
went to a Greek restaurant. I'm thinking the village records were
correct in stating there were no sheep in Dudynce. If they made their
trousers of leather, it might have been deer or cowhide??????
