Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My great grandfather, Benjamin Kessner (family rumor has it that his name was Kushner before immigration) came to New York City circa 1893 from Bucharest, Romania. His wife (whom he married in Bucharest) was Dora Grasse (maiden name); they had six children, all born in the U.S.: Ida, Rose, Anne, Robert, Louis, and Edith.
If any one is researching these names, or of this sounds at all familiar to you, please contact me.
