One of my ancestors (Georg (Jerzy) Kopp - or Kopf) is identified as a
shepherd in records from the Chodecz parish in Poland around 1855. He
lived in Wichrowice at that time. At least two other men, Andrzej amd
Michal (perhaps his brothers?), also shepherds, are listed as witnesses
in Georg's children's births and deaths. They were from other towns -
Wilkowice (nearby) and Dabzelowa (??)
I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about shepherds in that
place and time. Were they most likely to work as shepherds for some
noble, or own their own sheep?
Has anyone run across many shepherds in that area or others in Poland?
