I am researching my KARSUNSKY / KORSUNSKY family >from the Stavische /
Tarasche area of Kiev Gubernia. This is what I know: My own Korsunsky family
lived in Stavische until the early1900's and then moved to Tarasche - maybe
when many of their children left the country. My GGF Velvel Korsunsky had 9
children of which we only know of 3, with the vague memory of a 4th.
Velvel's brother Mottel married 3 times, there are children >from these
marriages and although some names are known there are probably others.
Having laid out the background, here is my current quest: I recently found
an Ellis Island passenger list that includes the name of MEYER KORSUNSKY,
aged 20 who came to the US after a stay in London, but who was originally
from Tarasche. He was being met by his brother "BUROCH" KORSUNSKY whoseaddress is listed as 755 S. 3rd St Philadelphia.
The Korsunsky name has usually been changed to Carson or Karson in later
years. Does anyone have a connection to this family?
