Re: Are these the same person? #galicia #records #names


How common is the surname Kremer in that area?  If it is not a common name, the odds are that there is only one Sime Kremer.  And, since Rachel is the eldest and the only child listed with Hirsch as the father and  Rachel is listed as a child of Chiam in the 1870 census, that should be a strong indicator that Hirsch and Chiam are the same. Especially if the birth dates for Rachel are similar in the two record sets.

I have some similar JRI records with alternating names for the parents. Fortunately in that instance, it was easy to figure out.
