Descendants List of Abraham and Terza (née Wolf) Kahn

We can trace the Kahn family back to the early 1800s in the region around Themar, when Abraham and Theresa/Terza (née Wolf) had their first children, twins Isaak and Bertha, born on 26 April 1815 in Marisfeld. We do not yet know from where the Kahn family came before they settled in Marisfeld.

The Descendants List below includes all members of the family of Abraham and Theresa whom we have been able to identify. We started with the entry in the Marisfeld Jewish Family Register for Abraham and Therese and worked our way forward.
