Surnames: Cohen Katz
Hello, I am the great-granddaughter of Avram Katz from Piatra Neamt. I am interested in the connection between the family names Katz and Cohen. My grandfather, Haim (Harry) Cohen, was born to Avram Katz, but used Cohen as his surname when he arrived in the US -- perhaps an error on the ship manifest or in immigration records, or perhaps an alternate transliteration of the Hebrew, a name variant, etc. Any other Katz-become-Cohens out there?
