If John checks the JewishGen Jewish Communities
for Zasona, the town of Jasiunia appears showing
that it was called Iashuny in the Vilna district
and Province, in the Russian Empire. It is
called Jaszuny in the Wilno-Troki Province,
Poland between the Wars, in Poland, and in modern day Jasiunai in Lithuania.

Zasona I have not found. Can anyone throw any light on where
Zasona might be and it's current name? Is it possibly now a
suburb of Kiev?
