Kiper Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

The Kiper family resided in Krylow, Poland. I created a website to memorialize Jewish Krylow.

Kiper is pronounced like "keeper" in Poland. My first recorded ancestor Nuchym Kiper was a synagogue servant and teacher's assistant in a Jewish school, presumably in Krylow.

A document I have found related to the family is the marriage certificate from 1859, in which Hawa Kiper married Idel Golomb in Krylow:

SURNAME ORIGINS

The surname Kiper is a metonymic occupational name for a coppersmith, from central and southeastern Yiddish kiper, "copper". In some instances it may have been adopted as an ornamental name.
