Whilst searching through the Ellis Island site online for Morris or Moses
Michaelovitch leaving England by sea for USA, the name Moses Mokoboitch
came
up. Could this name be for real? Could it be that an official wrote down
whatn he thought he heard or is it simply illegible handwriting? Would
be
appreciative of someone telling me if Mokoboitch is a surname.

Thank you,

Sandra Bergman
I can't tell you anything about the surname, but I've found relatives of
mine by using a questionable name to bring me to the original manifest.
There I check both the next of kin back in the place of origin as well as
the person to they will be staying with on arrival.
