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

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??
