Kiev gubernia

Surnames linked to Korsun

Names Submitted by:    Lois Sernoff E-mail: JGLois@aol.com                            May 1999

The following database was compiled for my own use, and that of other researchers, whose family origins are in the shtetl of Korsun, Kiev Guberniya, Russia (now known as Korsun- Shevchenkovskiy, Ukraine) located at: 49°26' latitude and 31°15' longitude.

Most of the names are gathered from Philadelphia sources. However, I have added other names as found on the Internet and through direct correspondence with other Korsun researchers. One of those researchers, Corin Goodwin, contributed the charter for incorporation of the Landsmanshaftn known as “Hordishter-Korsoner Lodge” in New York. In this case the membership was drawn not only from Korsun but also from the nearby shtetl of Gorodishche.  Unfortunately, this NY charter does not contain the names of many members. It appears that only the officers are listed.

Within the database, the names in the Cemetery list and Charter list appear to be anglicized. With other sources, the names appear to be the “original” surname of the immigrant family.

For the surnames attributed to Montefiore Cemetery in suburban Philadelphia, additional information can be obtained by contacting the cemetery at:
Montefiore Cemetery; 600 Church Road, Jenkintown, PA 19046-4398.
