I read a message yesterday explaining how we changed krpan into karpan. There are many variations even in my own family. Some go by Karpen. I was told the same story growing up, that they changed our name to make it more american. I thought my brother was the last Karpan, I am so glad he is not. If you would like to chat email me. I know I have family back east I did not know I had relatives in canada. I also from what I know am 1 in 10 of other women named Sara or Sarah Karpan. So let's chat.
