How likely is it for a male named Meier PERLA in Lomza to have converted his
name to Peter MEYER in Germany on route to America?
I have a ship's record Jan 1884 for my g-grandfather Peter MEYER b. abt. 1857
claiming citizenship in Germany. No one else on board claimed citizenship to
Russia either. However, on all other documents found created in the U.S., he
claims citizenship to Russia or Russian Poland.
I found Meier PERLA married to who I believe to be my g-grandmother Guta
Kawkiewicz on JRI-Poland. Most of the other information seems to fit including
approximate birth and marriage dates.
I appreciate all feedback.
