JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help with given names (Ellis island db) #general


Hello -

I recently found a record that fits my KAMINSKY family in the Ellis
Island database. I am having trouble reconciling the family first names
and need some help. I have read the pages in the Jewish Gen website and
still need guidance.

The Ellis Island listing has

Sheofie Kaminsky (Male age 22)
Marianne Kaminsky (Female age 22 married)
Leonhard Kaminsky (Male age 1)

I've read that Leonhard could be Americanized to Isidore (which would
be correct for how I knew him). Am I correct in this?
The other two (my great grandparents) I knew as Samuel and Jennie.

Your collective wisdom is greatly appreciated

Thank you - Elizabeth Kaminsky
