I am sure you all are tired of help questions but  I bring you another one. You guys are so talented and I feel like I have exhausted myself researching this.

Looking for info on my great-great-grandmother and great-great-grandfather Benjamin Weiner and Miriam "Mary" Kasner. They lived in the Atlantic City, NJ area which is where several other Weiners live.

Benjamin was born in 1876 or 1878 and he immigrated with his son Leon and Louis in 1904 I believe.

Miriam was born in 1883 and immigrated in 1907. I believe they both came from Vol'yn or Volin UK or Starokonstantine UK.

My mother insists that their names were changed when they immigrated but I can't even find any ship records for them.

I noticed a few census records with  Benjamin and Mollie Wiener and son Leo: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KQRF-RZH

Also Mary and Bennie: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4PX-MZG

and one more. Mariam Benjamin, and Louis (and Sarah who is also in a few of them): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K4PX-H9Z

could this be a clue?

Matthew, we never tire of help questions. That’s why G2G! Not everyone has the same expertise, but that’s why the motto of WikiTree: Where Genealogists Collaborate. Continue to ask away!
Tannis and Pip,

Thank you both for replying!  I think the three clues you found are definitly the Miriam and Benjamin I am looking for.

What brought all of this about was that I received a DNA match to a woman in the Steelman family tree. The Steelmans were also from Atlantic City and Russia. So I suspect that there is a link between Miriam Kasner and the Steelmans which I believe is Franny "Frima" Kasner.

I am trying to find a link between Miriam Kasner and a Franny "Frima" Kasner from Atlantic City.
