I was looking in the "Bibliography of Jewish Genealogies and Family Histories"
and found something interesting. Under my last name (DAN) there was an entry
for COHEN, which would be our family genealogist's paternal ancestors. The
entry referred to a Wolf COHEN, born in 1860 in Lithuania and died in 1924
in San Francisco.
The entry referred to the Western Jewish History Center in Berkeley, CA, and
refers to "Wolf Cohen's Papers, 1924-1981." The papers included a family
genealogy and "an article about the Cohen and Dan family reunion."
Our genealogist, Walter Cohen of Austin, TX, did organize a series of family
reunions between 1980 and 2000, but they were for his mother's family, the
DAN/DEN/DUNN family of Lithuania. I am not sure where the reference to a
Cohen reunion came from, although it is possible that Walter also did some
research on the Cohen family and also organized a reunion on that side.
Can someone guide me to more information about Wolf Cohen and whether he and
Walter were related? I would appreciate any help in this matter.
