Salomon Moses & Gittel Meister Married in 1836 #poland #general


In JRI-Poland  I found records for Salomon Moses born in 1811. He is my great-great grandfather. In Family Tree of the Jewish People I found that his parents are recorded as Moses Hirschel Moses and Amalie Nossen. Salomon married Gittel Meister in 1836 (she was born 1814) . In FTJP, her grandparents are noted as the same Moses Hirschel Moses and Amalie Nossen. Thus their son Salomon married their granddaughter Gittel. Could this be??

Yes, it was and is possible for an uncle to marry his niece.
