Common names (was "Given Name Kisiel in Galicia") #general

Thank you for the response.

I agree, that this is not proof. But I originally thought that the name on
the US death certificate was a typo because I'd never heard of it.

In any case, it is a pleasure to see that there are other people who know
how to use the word "cohort" correctly!

Regards,

It is tempting to say that if a name is uncommon, it must be the person I am
looking for. But keep in mind that our family members were generally named
for older family who died. So even an uncommon name may be shared by several
cousins in the same town and the same age cohort. Even if the father's name
matches, the father's may be cousins as well.

I would appreciate it if anyone could give me an idea how common
Kisiel is as a given name. I personally had never encountered it
before.
