Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Names changes have me stymied: Hacohen, Hestrin, Gestrin , Katz #ukraine

Hello friends,

My mother's paternal name was HESTRIN (variations GESTRIN and GUESTRIN). Some family members were named HACOHEN - HESTRIN but the story passed down is that the original name was KATZ. I am wondering if anyone knows anything about these names, >from Lithuania originally and Poltava Gubernia in the Ukraine. They were Kohanim. Any clues would be gratefully accepted by me!
