I believe it is possible for a Cohen family to be descended >from Levites.
A paternal line on my family tree that has Cohen and Kagan surnames has a
tradition handed down >from earlier generations that they are not Kohanes.
This was confirmed when I had one of the men in that direct paternal line
take the Family Tree DNA Y-DNA test.
As expected, they did not have the Cohen genetic marker.
