I have been a member of the Talna (Talno, Talnoye) mailing list for a
few years and have never found anyone in the group other than me
interested in COHENS, or any of the spelling variants. Considering it's
such a common name I find it a bit weird. I have a copy affidavit from
a distant relative >from Kiev stating that he visited my
great-grandparents Levi and Chaya Cohen (nee Klaimon) in Talna just
after my grand-father's birth (presumably for his bris), and my
grandfather said that was where he was born, so I have no reason to
think he got this fact wrong. Levi's father was Shmuel.
Does anyone in the Ukraine SIG recognise this family?
Also looking for Sheps/Brickman/Chertkow/Potashnikov >from various towns
around Kiev and Odessa
