Subject: [JewishKeidan] Re: Keidan: Cohen Family
In my surname index to the Keidan birth records translated to date,
there are 5 Bernshteyn/Berinshteyn birth records and 69 Cohen/Kagan
birth records (Kagan=Cohen when transliterated from the Russian).
Clearly there was a very large Cohen family in Keidan, although I
cannot say that they were all necessarily from the same family.
Unfortunately my surname index is just that--surnames. For reasons
that are too complicated to explain here, I cannot include given
names in my index. I compiled this index so that people can ask me
if the surnames they are researching are represented. I cannot
search for given names also because there are already thousands of
translated birth records in my database and these are not in
alphabetical order. The records are in chronological order and are
grouped by year.
If you want to know more about the LitvakSIG Vital Records Project,
please go to the webpage below:
If you wish to become a member of the Keidan VRI group by making a
contribution, you can find these details on the website, or you can
write to me at ozabludoff@...
A $100 donation entitles you to receive all the translated records
to date as well as all those that will be translated in the future--
about 18,000 Keidan records in total (birth, marriage, divorce,
death). A lesser contribution is greatly appreciated since it
furthers the translation effort. All the translated records will be
posted on the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database hosted by JewishGen
But there is a delay of about one year from the time the records are
completed until they are posted on the ALD.
