I need to contact Douglas Allen KASS, president of Seebreeze Partners
He claims that he and Sandy KOUFAX share the same grandparents. It is
critical that I know their first names to prove my ties to Sandy. It
should be Samuel/Shmueyl KOVAC and Sara but Doug says his grandfather
was Harry, born 1900 and does not give his grandmother's given name.
I have confirmed after many years that I am related to Bessie/Bettie
KOUFAX (born 1879), spouse of Louis KOUFAX (born 1874).
Sandy's ancestors were sephardic Hungarian Jews who lived in Grodno,
Belarus, where my mother came from. I have no evidence of sephardic
Hungarian connection in my family but my grandfather's surname sounds
mysteriously Hungarian: BADASZ.
My grandmother's maiden name was KUSZNER. I need to know Bessie's
maiden name. How can I get in touch with Doug Kass?
