My father was raised on a farm in Bavaria.? He told me that they always had two "helpers" on the farm: a man called a Knech (or knecht?) and a woman called a "Magd"? (I don't know the spelling)? The Man would help with the farm chores, and the woman helped in the house and with the chores a woman would do.

Since I know the word Dienst means "service" I am would asume this is someone who is in service to the family,


?


There is probably someone with a better explanation.
