The migration and surname listings on this page are primarily those of the blood relations of our Cohen family. But we also have studied many families intensely which are not listed below, who are relatives of our relatives. So, if the information you see below does not fit what you know about your particular family, please do also use our personal FreeFind site search to see if you can find your family elsewhere on our website or in our Family Trees.
This listing shows the time periods that I am sure our families lived where they lived. If you notice any errors, or have additional information about dates or places, let me know.
