Descendants of Yosef Meir Weiss the "Imrei Yosef" #romania

Hi All
My paternal great grandmother Rivka Basch (maiden name)  was born in Sapanta, Romania.  After marrying my great grandmother, she lived in Sighet, Romania.  According to my father, who was born in the 1920's and lived in a small town that was across the Tisa River in Czechoslovakia and not far from Sighet Romania, a rabbi who was a descendant of the "Sapinka Rebbe" and a relative of my grandmother's family, visited my father's family multiple times during my father's youth.  I know that Yosef Meir Weiss, the founder of the Sapinka Hasidic rabbinic  dynasty, married Perel Basch who was the daughter of Ezra Yaakov Basch of Sapanta, Romania.  I haven't, to date been able to establish a connection between my paternal line and that "Sapinka Rebbe".  I am looking for additional information from known descendants of Yosef Meir Weiss and Perel Basch, either genealogical or via DNA testing, that would determine if my paternal line had any genealogical connection to Ezra Yaakov Basch.  My father's DNA info is available on multiple genealogical sites so DNA matching is a possibility.
I appreciate any information that you may be able to offer!
