Seeking info. on Barnett KOSKY & Yetta KOSKY, formerly KLIMAN ... who were from Poland
We are looking for any information on Barnett KOSKY & Yetta KOSKY, formerly KLIMAN. They came to England from Poland, arriving in Liverpool and settling in the East End of London. We know the lived at 134 Brick Lane Whitechapel, Spitalfields in 1897 as that was where their son Joseph KOSKY was born (we got this info from his birth certificate). They later had a son called Jack in 1905 while they were living in the Mile End area. We have traced Barnett to a Carpenters business in Hoxton, Shoreditch around 1910 - 1912. We can find no trace of them on any census returns for 1901, and have found no record of Jack's birth. So between 1897 and 1910, we have little to go on about them. We also know that both boys were orphaned at some point when Joseph was aroud 9 years old and had a local connection to the Thanet area of Kent. Any help or information would be gratefully received.
