About Abigail Olga Katzenellenbogen (Jaffe)

HL pointed out some inconsistencies in the profile. These might have occurred due to multiple merges of profiles from different trees using different sources:

There are still serious problems and inconistencies with this profile that need to be reviewed and changed: 1) Date of Birth - 1525 is at least 5 years before her father was born -- an impossibility.

2) Her father lived in Prague and did not arrive in Italy (Venice, not Padua) until 1561 for a 10-year sojourn following expulsion of the Jews from Bohemia.

3) Her husband was born in 1521 in Padua, and her son, Shaul Wahl, was born in 1542. These inconsistencies need to be reconciled, since there is no way they will all fit the same single profile. Sincerely,
