I was looking for a Maurice Axelrad and found instead an interesting Maurice
Axelrod. For those of you who might be related to this person, I am
providing info >from his manifest: He had been living in Oudtshoorn, South Africa,
and left and came to America on the SS Lusitania in 1914, was 21, a bookkeeper,
born in Gorobin, Russia, left his mother Hoda Axelrod in Minsk, Belarus. The
original info on the manifest looked like he was going to his brother in America,
but it was crossed out and very difficult to read. It appeared that instead he was
going to a friend in Ridgefield (probably Connecticut).
