Mystery Monday: What’s this occupation? #genealogy

Can you make out the third occupation down? It looks like merchand de planche…which isn’t listed in any French dictionary…



However, merchand de plancher is. So, best guess:lumber dealer! An interesting occupation for the flat farmland right outside of Luxembourg City.


What occupations would you not expect to find near your ancestor’s home?
