Dear Cousins,

A relative of mine immigrated >from Trakai, Lithuania, in 1907. His given
name on the manifest & passenger record is "Owsey." Last name ADELSOHN.
Though it's a good joke on him, what might that be a misspelling of?

He later became Samuel ADELSON, and lived in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

Unless it's useful for other genners, please reply privately to

Best,
