A map of modern Germany showing

This site is a collation of descendants of Pinchas Kahane, at one time of Schönhausen, Germany.

The information comes from various Kahane descendants, both in my line and others.


Although we don't yet have a record of Pinchas' birthplace, his wife and daughter were born in Schönhausen.

The town of Schönhausen lies in the district of Stendal in Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. It is the seat of the Elbe-Havel-Land Verbandsgemeinde, which is a collective municipality much like an American township.
