My grandfather was born in Korsum, Gov. Kiev, Russia (his writing and
spelling) in 1883. I'm not sure what the town is called today. His father
was Israel REISKIN, his mother Sonya MORGENSTERN. Supposedly he was the
youngest of 10 children. He went to Vienna when he was 17. I am looking
for any information on Korsum and the Reiskin family who lived there. My
mother says that Baba Yar (sp?) Concentration Camp was on that location and
she thinks that no records can be found. Does anyone have an idea of where
I can look for further info?

The town must be Korsun (full name: Korsun Shevchenkovskiy, or, in
Ulrainian, Korsun Shevchenkivskiy), in Kiev Gubernia, Ukraine. Babi Yar,
which is not a concentration camp but a mass killing ground, is not in
Korsun but rather in, or at the edge of, the city of Kiev.
