I would like to know how common the given name "Kisiel" was in Galicia.
I just discovered that my ggg-gf was named Kisiel SIEGMAN. He lived around
1835-1905 in Buchach, Ukarinae (Buczacz, Galicia). His non-Jewish name was
I found a Kisiel SIEGMAN in the Gesher Galicia DB, in the property owner
registry. I of course cannot prove or disprove that he was "my" Kisiel
SIEGMAN. However, based on how common the name is, I would like to be able
to estimate the chances that it is he.
I would appreciate it if anyone could give me an idea how common Kisiel is
as a given name. I personally had never encountered it before.
