My Aunt Rose (Ruchel) KESSLER married Sam SOMMER. I found him on the
passenger manifest as Shmiel SOMMER. He apparently became Sam as soon as
possible, probably upon putting foot on American soil.

I am trying to determine whether my Great Uncle, who called himself Samuel

"Schiel" when he got on the boat in Hamburg. Is there usually a tie between
these two names?
