Re: Jewish Given Names - Wohamja? #galicia

While I am sure it is not Wohamja, I am pretty sure this is Nehemja, a
Jewish name once used in Poland. If you look closely into the document you
will likely recognize the spelling, unless of course a clerk misspelled it.

I learned >from my Grandfather's Petition for Naturalization that
his given name was Wohamja and not Hyman as I'd been told.
