Widows and remarriage #poland


siroli@...
 

My great-great grandfather was born several days after the death of his
father in Plock abt 1872. Would there have been an expected period of
mourning before the widow could remarry (she was left with several young
children). Also, how common would it have been at that tme for the widow
to remarry a younger, unmarried brother of her dead husband?

Thanks
Simon
