EISENs of Kogaran Australia in 1924; JAFFEE ostrich farmer in Australia #general


In investigating a relative's family tree, I found a
family narrative that had been typed in 1932 talking
of the origins of the JAFFEE family in northeast
Lithuania (Papile, Kupiskis). I would like to share
the document with descendants, who may be in
Australia. The story ends with:

"Samson JAFFEE, father of Annis EISEN, goes to Africa
and later to Australia where he buys an ostrich farm."

I found a 1924 ship manifest for an Annis Eisen who
was visiting the US as a tourist. She was born in
about 1884, wife of Jules Eisen of Kogaran, Australia.

If anyone can locate a descendant of Samson Jaffee or
Annis Eisen, I would love to pass on information on
their family roots in Lithuania (and can connect them
with a couple of other descendants of this family in
the U.S.).

Thank you,
