Hello fellow Ciechanow researchers
My Ciechanow ancestors arrived in London in the early 1890s and used the surname
KLEIN. I'm almost 100% certain they were natives of Ciechanow as I have many
records >from the UK and Australia in which they indicated that this was their home
town. I've searched the JRI-Poland for Kleins in Ciechanow in the period 1860-1880
and nearby areas without any success, but I've noticed that the surname
KLEIN/KLEJN/KLAJN on its own does not appear very frequently in Ciechanow,
whereas names such as KLEJNIUD, KLEJNMAN, KLEINIEC, KLEJNOD,
KLAJNHAUS, etc are well represented.
I was wondering if anyone has examples of their Ciechanow ancestors shortening their
longer Klein*** surnames to Klein?
