My great-grandfather was Leib Kasdan, born around 1875 in Krucha/Mogilevy/Belarus. His parents were Barney and Gertrude Kasdan and he married Bella Shulman in 1894.  Leib immigrated to NYC in July 1903 via Amsterdam. By the time he landed on Ellis Island, he called himself Louis Cohen. He brought over his wife and children in February, 1909 under the named Kazdan. Leib/Louis may have lived in Lower Manhattan initially but he settled his family on Staten Island where relatives still live there. The house Leib/Louis built in 1920 still stands. He also had a younger brother Oscher/Oscar who immigrated in 1906.
