Dora Cohon nee Azarin #ukraine

beth lozano

My g grandmother was born in 1865, reportedly in Ekaterinoslav. However, I have information that her father, Veniamir Azarin, born 1839, died 1926, moved from Gomel (Homel) to Sosizita, Chernigov in 1868.  How could I confirm that Dora was born in Ekaterinoslav?

Her 1st husband, Mowscha (Mordechai Anshel Morris) Kaganow, was also reportedly born in Ekaterinoslav in 1842 (he was quite a bit older than she). I'm interested in verify that too. He changed his name to Cohon at some point, perhaps when he arrived in the USA.

Thanks for your help.
