Iso KAIDAN surname #general #names

janice kaidan

We have hit a longstanding brick wall in our search for relatives of my grandfather Leo/Aryeh Leib Kaidan and/or his wife Chana/Chane/Annie Zekcer (sp.?). Leo was born in 1877. Is anyone familiar with this surname? Can anyone help us find extended family?
Many thanks and all the best.

Hope this helps,
