Re: Kogan/Kagan #ukraine

The spellings are arbitrary. However, Cohen (and its Russian equivalent Kagan, due to Russian having no "h") is probably the most common Jewish name, like Smith or Jones in America, You cannot make any assumptions about relationship based on the names. Indeed, not all people with that name are Kohanim.
