Even though the name is fairly common, I have the same thing with my mother's maiden name, Christensen. Whenever I see it, I think they MUST be long lost cousins.

Jeremy Knaster

Well, you've found one, indeed. Yeah, that's me on imdb. You might also be interested to know that an artist who painted under her married last name of Lozano is my first cousin, Lee Knaster. Known to the art world as Lee Lozano, currently displayed at the Museum of Modern Art here in New York. Alas, she passed several years ago, but her art lives on forever. Traveling abroad last year I looked everywhere for that Knaster tobacco but was not able to locate any. My dad once went to Paris and found a knaster there, but that was it. Good luck in your search!

My mom was Shirley Frances Knaster Sheer. She and her mom and two brothers came to NY in 1928, from Nowy Dwor, Poland. Her dad, Abraham came a few years earlier to get established. Mom passed in December 2000, but my grandfather, who was one of 18 siblings (most of them were twins). The descendants are all over the place especially in NYC and So. Cal.
