Many definitions of professions, diseases, conditions of kinship and localities have changed over the centuries; most of these expressions are no longer in use. Latin, then the language of the clergy, is banned in our schools today. Localities also have changed because of formations of new borders and states.
Naturally, not all terminology can be listed in this work. It is also important to point to the fact, that some of the definitions from the historic Central Europe can only with difficulty be translated into English. But the more than 2000 expressions should be sufficient for the novice researcher and hobbyist alike. Many of the terms and definitions listed are typically Austrian; but some of the vocabulary (like Chalupner, podsedek, Gärtler) also comes from the countries of the former Austrian Monarchy.
