This is my first posting to the group so please forgive any transgressions.
I am trying to trace any of my maternal grandfather's family who originated firstly in Ukmerge Lithuania then moved to Kuspiskis Lithuania. The family name is KESSELSON but there are inevitably numerous variations.
On the SA Jewish Root Banks site I have found the burial records of 3 members of the CASELSON family but at this stage I have no idea if they are related. I am aware >from a cousin that another branch of my family did reach S Africa but their name evolved into Kaserson.
So my questions are:
1 Are there any BMD or other records I can use to trace the CASELSON family and where do I find them?
2 Do any members of the group recognise the CASELSON family?
I am visiting S Africa later this month so a visit to any archives in the Johannesburg/Pretoria areas might be possible.
Many thanks in advance.
