Cohen/Feldmans in Washington, D.C. #lithuania #usa


Hello, I am researching the Cohen and Feldman families from Washington, D.C. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  I am hoping to clarify cousin relationships among immigrants from Kovno.  Thanks

You might want to post some full names and dates of the individuals you seek information on. Otherwise it's like looking for a COHEN in a haystack.

I'm very interested in your mention of the name Bessie Cohen Schenofsky, as I am from a Cohn family that settled initially in Baltimore, and then in Washington, DC, and I have been told that the Cohn name was originally Chinoffsky, which seems similar to your Schenofsky.  I had initially assumed that your Bessie was born a Cohen, but married a Schenofsky, however, after taking a look at your tree on, I am not sure where the name Schenofsky came from.  Can you clarify the source of this name?  Where did you find it?
