I would be happy to connect with any members of my KATZOFF family
from Brisk/Brest-Litovsk.
My grandfather,Philip (Reuven Shraga) KATZOFF emigrated to the USA
around 1905. He was born just after his father passed away and is
such named for his father. He married Golda PUTERMAN. Some relatives
moved to Argentina.

BTW, it seems that in a Slavic language KATZOFF (variant spelling)
refers to someone in the lumber trade which my ancestors were
involved. We are not Cohanim (as some sources have suggested).

TIA
