JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching: KESNER (and variants of the name) #general
Ally Burdett <allyburdett@...>
I am looking for any information about this family. It would also be nice to
hear >from anyone who thinks they may have an ancestor in common.
The surname may not actually be KESNER. I have reason to believe that it may
be KIZENER or KISNEY or something else similar.
The names are: Solomon and Dinah Kesner. Census records state they were born
in Russia, but obviously due to border changes, their birth place may not be
known as that today.
Their children were Dora, Caroline, Amelia and Leah. The family left Russia
in the late 1860s. Amelia was born in Hamburg in about 1868, and the family
eventually settled in Whitechapel, London, in about 1870. Leah was born in
London. >from a post I found on another forum, I was able to ascertain that
Leah emigrated to New York in about 1890.
