Re: Keidaners! Now you can ask all...Again
- Hi Ron,
I have been looking out for the Isher STUNG-Yetta/Enta SMIDT
marriage record for some time. If it ever existed it no longer does.
The marriage records jump from 1861 to 1865; 1862-1864 did not
But one thing bothers me about your "lost" record. If the marriage
took place between 1862-1864, there most likely would have been a
string of births in the following years. There are 28 STUNG/SHTUNG
birth records between the years 1865-1914, but none of them show the
parents as Isher STUNG and Yetta/Enta SMIDT.
There are 13 marriage records so far for STUNG (12 brides and 1
groom)but the groom is not Isher. There are more STUNG records in
those I have yet to proof.
Perhaps you are missing something by focusing 100% on the Isher
STUNG-Yetta/Enta SMIDT marriage. You told me some time ago that this
was a theory for the birth of the name ASHERSON/ISHERSON. It is a
tantalizing possibility, but the fact is that nothing has come of
this theory. Is it perhaps time to start looking for other clues?

- Hi, i am a new member and new to geneology in general. I now live in
Toronto but all of my family that came from Keidan livedin South
My Grandfather - Michal (Mike)Zalman Gordon came from Keidan i
believe in 1928 and was born in 1910. I am very eager to obtain
information about his family, of which i know very little about. I
am told his parents were Devorah and Nocham (Nachum?) Gordon. Please
let me know the best way to research my family, any info on birth
certificates, or other vital statisitcs would be great.
Also i see on jewishgen.org that there is a posting from the "Anshei
Keidan, Washington" about a Michal Zalman Gordon from Keidan, but
who lived most likely in Washington (the hebrew name does not match
my grandfathers) and could very well be family of ours, anyone know
how to contcat them?

There are many Mikhel and Zalman GORDONs in the Keidan births and marriage databases. These seem to be popular GORDON names. There is one Mikhel Zalman GORDON who may have been your grandfather's grandfather. In 1903 Zise GORDON was born to Efroim and Dvoire GORDON. Efroim's father was Mikhel Zalman. There are many GORDON females in the databases also whose fathers are named Mikhel and Zalman.

- HI JULIAN: My maternal grandmother Breina Taube Meryash, was a Zelmanovich
(Americanized to Selman) and I suspect Mike Zalman Gordon were related, I
know of no direct connection between the Gordon and Meryash family, except
this possible one.
Suggest you contact Ada Green, adagreen@... who is really knowledgeable
and has done a tremendous amount of work on this subject.
- Thanks Gus!!!
Please stay in touch
