Hello Mrs. Robin,

I might be able to help you with respect to the names that you listed. I
am the author of The Naturalized Jews of the Grand Duchy of Posen in 1834
and 1835, http://www.avotaynu.com/books/posen.htm That book contains
references to Ascher and Pinkus. Cohen is the western German spelling for
Cohn and Kohn, the eastern German spelling. My book lists Cohns, Kohns,
and Kahns. Some of them are >from towns that you listed.

You might wish to consult the URL below my name to see if any of my
published articles, some of which can be read free of charge, anonymously,
in full-text on line, might be useful to you. I have several articles, one
in both English and Polish, specifically on Poznan Jewish research. See
"Poznan City Genealogical and Historical Research, Emphasizing Jewish
Resources," Gen Dobry!, Vol. X, No. 6, June 2009, pp. 2-19, including
endnotes, pp. 17-19.
<http://www.polishroots.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=164mhlXT35w%3d&tabid=60&mid=377>,
pp. 2-19. It is also available in hard copy.

I wish you success in your further searches.

Sincerely,
Edward David Luft
