JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen re: Use of Mother's Maiden Name #general

Dear All:

I think some genners are confusing two different situations:
traveling under a false name vs. changing one's name
permanently (for ease of pronunciation)

My cousins used their mother's maiden name (reason unknown)
while traveling, but resumed their father's name on arrival. So
there must have been some reason other than anglicization.
They did have a maternal uncle in the States so maybe they
thought it would be easier to be admitted with a close relative,
with the same name, already here.
