The type for my ancestors is bold

Ciechanowicz descendents live in the United States, Israel and England. Some have changed their names to Saxon, Seakwood, Sikowitz, Cheney.

My grandfather was named Moszk-Herszk CIECHANOWICZ in records from Goworowo, Poland. On the 1895 ship's manifest in the Ellis Island records, my grandfather is Meir Czechenowitz. In the 1900 US census he is Moris Silkowitz, in 1910 he is Morris Seikowitz, and Morris Silkowitz in 1920. By 1930, the census taker spelled my grandfather's last name Saxson. The last name for the family eventually stabilized as Saxon.

The photo at the left top of the page is my grandfather within a few years after he came to the United States. He sent this photo back to his wife and  three children in Lomza, Poland. They arrived in New York in September, 1900.

Photo at top right is Morris Saxon and his brothers in the two back rows, with some of their famiies.

I have some additional information on some CIECHANOWICZ, PIATNICKA, PERLA, ROZENBERG families
