My mother was Tillie. She and her brothers said that her name was really
Matilda; she disliked that name so, of course, the brothers called her Matilda.
After many years of research, I've never seen another name. My father called her
Teibl; there was a very remote relative named Taube. Unfortunately, on the ship
manifest she is listed as male with an unreadable name. What to do?
