The occupation of “Gemeindevorsteher” is translated as “the head of the rural community” or “a director of a common land cooperative extending over several political municipalities.”
“Nachbar” is variously defined as a “farmer” or “village comrade” or “member of a group (Nachbarschaft) leasing land from the landlord”.
