“We don’t carry the Ukrainian last name. For a lot of people who are descendants of World War II refugees or survivors of the Holocaust, a lot of names and paperwork were changed in the name of survival. So I don’t carry the family last name that would’ve been Zabrovsky. I carry my mother’s maiden name which is the Dutch side of the family,” Santos advised Fox News digital in February. 

A genealogist employed by CNN discovered “no sign of Jewish and/or Ukrainian heritage and no indication of name changes along the way.”
