Before any of the Partitions of Poland, Lutheran records from Zduny, Krotoszyn refer to some, but not all, of the men as Bürger.  

What does Bürger mean in this context?   Town citizen, without regard to nationality?   Prussian citizen living in Poland?   Courtesy title?  Does it imply where someone came from? 

Kind regards,
