I may be a cousin of yours.
My father was William Kaps and he had 5 brothers ( Herman,George,Carl,Teddy,and Peter) and 2 sisters ( Helen and Dicky)
Thier father was Ernest Kaps and thier mother was Ernestine Sieglund Kaps and they all grew up in NY.
My unclr Teddy called me when his last child was born and told me he was naming her after me since it was a girl , if it had been a boy he would have named him for my father so it is possible you and I are related.
