Given Name Boruch #galicia


Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

I have a death certificate for a William JOACHIM, died Brooklyn, New York in
1910. Based on his age at death, 60 years, and his parents' names, I am
able to pinpoint him as a Boruch JACHIMOWITZ found in the Rzeszow, Poland
(Galicia, Austro-Hungarian Empire) births index on-line at JRI-Poland.

Can anyone tell me if William was a name adopted by men born Boruch in that
part of the world, in the time frame involved?

As always, I checked Professor Esterson's given names database and did not
locate the confirmation for which I am looking.

Many thanks to all,
Eden Joachim
