the name "Annie" #general

Norman Greenfeld

With no expectation that I am about to improve the state of the world,
let me give you my "Annie" story.
My aunt arrived here with her mother and sister in 1909. On the ship's
manifest she is listed as blonde, blue-eyed boy(!) named Chenie. This
was crossed out and corrected to female, Anna.
BTW, because my uncle was late arriving at Ellis Island, grandmother and
two aunts were held over for one day as potential unwanted aliens!
