Re: Reproductive ages for women in Poland in the 1800s #galicia

Stephen,

I have a woman in my family tree, born in 1803, who had her first child
in 1847, when she was 44 and a 2nd child in 1849 when she was 46.
She also died at the age of 94. You can not go by "estimates".

Also, in regards to your first question of "[when did women back then]
go through puberty?": Jewish women in general did not marry until they
were 18. They were supposed to be virgins before they got married. Many
women did not marry until they were in their 20s. So this question does
not matter in this case.
