The name Vikhna #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

Alter Solomon asks about whether the Hebrew/Yiddish name Vikhna was
prevalent in particular communities.

If one searches the JewishGen Lithuania Database for the given name
Vikhna, one finds 189 results among the revision lists and 39
among the 1897 Census.

But when one searches the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database
< www.jri-poland.org > for Wichna (the Polish version of Vikhna),
one finds far fewer listings, and most of those in Grodno Gubernia,
which borders Lithuania:


23 records >from Grodno Gubernia
2 records >from Lomza Gubernia
4 records >from Lublin Gubernia
5 records >from Piotrkow Gubernia
3 records >from Plock Gubernia
8 records >from Siedlce Gubernia
2 records >from Warszawa Gubernia
1 record >from no specified Region

This tells me that Vikhna is a name that was mostly popular among
Lithuanian Jewish women. In my own BASTUNSKI family, there was
a Vikhna (born about 1847), who was my great-grandfather's sister,
and another Vikhna born somewhat later in the 19th century who was
my grandfather's first cousin. They all lived near Eisiskes and Lida
in Vilna Gubernia.

(The recently-added ability to search most all-country databases by
given name can provide some answers to questions about where a name
was popular and how much it was used.)

PLACZEK in the 1827 Census of Damborice, Moravia #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I have been doing a bit more on the PLACZEK family and
will continue with that and other research when I
return >from Vienna.

One of the most interesting findings was that Baruch
PLACZEK, the Chief Rabbi of Moravia, amateur
ornithologist and close friend of Gregor Mendel, who
we also know corresponded with Darwin - was the uncle,
believe it or not, of Leo BAECK.

Leo BAECK, was a Moravian, not a German as most people
imagine. Baruch's sister, Eva married Samuel BAECK and
they had four daughters [all murdered in the
holocaust] and the famous Leo [23 May 1873, Lissa,
Poland - Nov 2 1956, London, England].

There were Jewish PLACZEK in a few places in Moravia
- [I believe there were non-Jewish ones as well in
Silesia, Germany and Moravia too].

I have found Seligmann and Salomon PLACZEK/PLATSCHEK
in Damborice in the 1827 Jewish census. This chapter
[in Czech] >from Hugo Gold's "Jews and Jewish
Communities of Moravia" has been scanned by the Jewish
Museum, Prague:
It contains many names. Damborice is about 23km NNE of
Kostel/Podivin see:
www.zidovskemuzeum.cz/doc/damborice20.pdf

The census should be of interest to our Moravians who
are always hungry for hard facts.

I have checked the message archives and have found
Rudy Matzner, Charlie Roberts, and Richard Pollenz all
looking for their families >from Damborice. Yes, they
are all there in 1827 census: MATZNER, HUBER [for
Charlie] and lots of POLLENZ too.

If they have not seen this chapter, it should be a
valuable source of information.

Widows and remarriage #poland

siroli@...
 

My great-great grandfather was born several days after the death of his
father in Plock abt 1872. Would there have been an expected period of
mourning before the widow could remarry (she was left with several young
children). Also, how common would it have been at that tme for the widow
to remarry a younger, unmarried brother of her dead husband?

Thanks
Simon
