Was the child male or female? #general


My GGM departed Hamburg for Hartford in 1906 with a child accompanying
her. The Hamburg Passenger List states that the child was a girl,
Marjen, age 10. The Ellis Island Manifest states that the child was a
boy, Chan, age 10. Chaim, a male, lived in Hartford >from 1906-1930.
How could two different sexes be listed for the same person on two
different Manifests? Why would a parent do this?

Thank you for any answers you may have.
