Kogan/Kagan #ukraine


David Mason
 

I’m researching Kogan=>Cohen from Zvenigorodka, Cherkassy Region, Ukraine.  Of 1,711 people in the Yad Vashem data for this town, 28 are Kogans and 13 are Kagans. 

 

I assume both are Cohanim, but how closely are they related?  Are these just arbitrary transliterations into Russian/Ukrainian and potentially close relations, or is there a definite split many generations ago?
