I am looking for my family roots, from one side: Lipa Jarmak (my grandfather) and the other Sarah Brick (my grandmother). They were born at the end of the 19th century, and died in WWII. I know they lived in Wojtkowa, and would like to know anything about them.
The Polish word for fair jarmark was borrowed from German Jahrmarkt (annual fair). If the name was spelt Jarmark or Jarmak then it most probably originated on Polish soil
As for Brick, that couild have been a respelling of German Brücke (bridge).
Yiddish (from Jüdisch) is a dialect of German.
