In compiling lists of my family members who lived in Warszawa during the mid
1800's, I have found quite a few of them who lived at house number 1809.
This corresponds to street address Franciszkanska 6-10 (the precise street
address on Franciszkanska seems to depend on which source of data I use). I
can identify about 10 different family members who were residents -- with 4
different surnames. Different people resided there at different times over
a 50-year period, and in some cases the relationship was no closer than that
of distant cousin. There were another dozen or so of my relatives that
resided in the near vicinity. There's no other address in Warszawa for which
there is such a large cluster of my relatives.
So I'm wondering whether there might have been something special about that
address (or its neighbors). Was it a huge tenement building? Was it a
religious headquarters? Or does it simply turn out that families clustered
in a single area? Does anyone know?
