Information Question
Category: Do you recognize?
Family Surname: Saron
Country: Lithuania
Town: Zagare
  I have been trying to identify this photo for some time. It was sent to me by a relative and she thought that it was a relative of the Kahn (Kagan) family from Zagare. On the back of the photo is marked "Mayor of Zagare".

Yesterday I was going through some newsletters that were sent to me by David Swit in the 1980's when he did exensive research on the Saron and Kahn families.

Through information that I read, and from the All Lithuanian Revision List, I believe this photo is probably Meir Saron, who lived ca 1810 to 1885 and whose wife's name was Mere.

Are there any Sarons out there who could confirm this? Thanks, Jo Ann Goldwater
