I just read about the passing of Mr Bogin. My grea-grandmother's maiden name was Bessie Bogin. She would have been born around 1880, emigrated to NYC from Minsk, and was married to my great-grandfather in approx 1900 in NYC. They lived in the lower east side. They eventually moved to Passaic or Clifton NJ. I am wondering if she was related to Abba. She might have been his aunt. Does anyone know the family background of Abba?

Thank you.
