Jewish woman descended from a Polish queen? #poland

RuthNW <ruthnw@...>
 

I just came across the record of a married woman whose given name
was originally Jadwiga. Was amazed to discover that Jadwiga was a
14th century Polish monarch!

Her name was Ita/Jadwiga FRUMER (with an umlaut over the "U").
(I'm assuming that FRUMER is a variant of FRYMER, her husband's
surname, even though it sounds Germanic.) Ita's parents were
Moszek Zysel (unmistakably Jewish!) and Estera DOBROCZYCKICH/POZANSKA.
Estera is always (or at least usually) considered Jewish - but what
about those two last names - would they be considered "Jewish?"

I'm wondering whether Ita's mother was of mixed parentage. Otherwise
why would a (supposedly Jewish woman be named after a Polish (Christian)
queen?

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Dear Genealogical Investigators


I am trying to learn more about my grandparents and
great-grandparents. All that I know is that they were married on 28
Mar 1909 at the Temple on Seitenstettengasse.


My grandmother's maiden name was Antonie Behrer-Bruerk, and her
mother's name was Marie.


My grandfather's name was Marcus Pflugeisen and his mother's name was
also Marie.


If I could learn anything about the marriages of either Marie, that
would be fantastic help.


Many thanks in advance


Marc Mangel

Re: Jewish Life in Botosani #romania

To paraphrase Bibi N, better no book than a wrong book. I have not read
"Departures..." but just >from the publisher description below, I highly doubt
one will get a good idea about Jewish life in 19th century
Moldavia/Romania. I am aware of only one book by G. Sternberg, a monograph
of Stefanesti, which could be of interest but it is mostly relevant to
post 1900.

I believe the best source of information are the entries in the YIVO
Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe, published in 2008.

"In early l9th Century Europe, Paris is the center of culture and thought,
and Vienna the heart of music, dance and flirtation. Romania, part of the
Ottoman Empire, is a mysterious land of Draculas, vampires, superstitions
and curses. It struggles with Russia, is governed by corrupt Greeks, and
sustained by Jewish merchants, peasants and enslaved Gypsies. It is the
home of Iacob ABELESCU, the youngest brother of a Jewish family engaged in
curing and purveying pelts.

ABELESCU temporarily leaves Romania to visit a cousin, one of
Vienna's salon Jews. He travels on to Paris, where he meets Jeannette
Ballin, the well-educated daughter of a successful furrier. In love with a
young Sephardic Jew, Jeannette is compelled by her father to accept Iacob
Abelescu as her husband. More suited to wine, women and coffee-houses, he
first brings her to Vienna, then home to Romania.

"Departures" is a portrait of early l9th century Jews in Romania,
France and Vienna, and the saga of a family divided by distance, of
friends united by love. It is also a story of the nature of love, and the
first of a series of related novels spanning two centuries."
