We have had a number of replies - but why speculate? As he left the UK he
was called Michael. He appears to have a brother with a more puzzling
Uryph or Urysh? What was he called on arrival in Canada?

On the Canadian manifest which we pointed to the
other day, there is both a Michael 9, and a Mysl 7,
both male. So most likely the Michael indexed in the
UK database is the older brother.

We also saw the index for Uryph at the UK site but have not
looked at the manifest to verify the accuracy of the transcriber.
It is more likely this is Mysl if the age is correct.

In addition, Mysl is a valid Yiddish name for several Hebrew names .
How it relates to Aaron or Joseph would be more speculation without
additional information.
