JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Emigrating twice to USA? #general

Recently I have discovered a family member, my grandfather's brother, who
emigrated alone to the US in 1906, and again in 1912 with his wife and
children. Both cases are documented, and his grandson confirms that this
man did indeed go back to Ukraine, and may even have emigrated a third time.

The reason given was that he simply couldn't find a synagogue which was
strict enough for him. I know that people who emigrated first saved up and
brought over their families, sometimes years later. But does anyone else
have an instance of multiple emigration, and would the reason given be a
valid one?
