  13. Avunculate marriage?

I have heard that this was traditionally permitted under Jewish law, but clearly was not allowed under English law. In order to marry, according to the story, the...

  15. Em(m)anuel Abrahams & Pauline Krzasny

    Emmanuel Abrahams arrived in England from Russia, alone, aged 14. From census records and age at death, he appears to have been born about 1833 so his arrival would have been about say 1847 +/-. Pauline Krzasny was born in Witkowo, Posen/Poznan in what was then probably West Prussia. From documents...
