In the Litvak SIG database, the 1829 Panemune Frentzela death record for my 3rd great grandfather Abram Werebey lists his wife, my 3rd great grandmother, as Chiena.
What can you tell me about this name? Is it meant to be pronounced with a Hebrew/Yiddish Chet sound like a Chaya, Chava, and Chana? Or is it a tsch should like Charna? Is it related to one of those names? Is it a mistake and really should have been one of those names?
Thanks in advance for your ideas.
