David Rubin writes:
When I found my father's ship line, there he was with his family, and his
name was Mysl....We always knew his Hebrew name was Aron, and he
was called Joseph.

Note that this ship left the UK and arrived in Canada. We magnified both
the English and Canadian manifest images. On the English side the name
appears as Uryff. On the Canadian manifest, it is Ury?l. Orush and Orl are
both Yiddish nicknames for Aron. So this is our best explanation.

The use of the name Joseph in Canada still can't be explained without more
