My family is from Lithuania (Kovno Guburnia - Gudel/Godeliai) KAGAN/COHEN
Family lore has it that a cousin was Lord High Mayor of Dublin. This was before 1970. Perhaps not even Dublin. Any ideas of how to solve this mystery. I would say it was fantasy except that the same story was repeated by a family member who I did not grow up knowing.
We are NOT related to Briscoe but could there be another one?
