Having just discovered that my great grandmother's name was Gela
CHENCINER, I wonder if it's possible that such a name might have its
origin in the name of a town called Chencin. Is there such a place in
Poland or Russia? I have tried the Shtetl Seeker database but can't see
anything that might match.

Since you say the family is >from Warsaw, probably "Chencin" should be
sought in Poland, not in Pussia. My shot in the dark: it might well be that
when "Szczecziner" passed through the phonetics usual in the UK, it emerged
as "Chenciner", and that "Chencin" is "Szczeczin", in northwestern Poland,
not far >from the present German border.
