It might switch to Beryl, Barnett, Bernard, Barnard, as my Ber did. My Ber's
Hebrew name was Dov Ber, so he also used variations for Dov.

I have an Ellis Island manifest showing Ber SARAPIN arriving in 1913 from
Gorodok, Russia. He apparently went to my grandfather, Charles SARAPIN.

I can find no other record for this person.

What name might "BER" have been transformed to?

-Michael
