Subject: Arrival Manifest Question
The cousin seems to think that this Lore
is Boris' sister Sarah. I can't find any indication anywhere that Lore
would be a nickname for Sarah, or vice-versa.

I am fairly sure that Lore would be Sarah because a capital "L" in cursive can look like and be confused with a capital "S" making the ancestor's name Sore which is close to the Yiddish for Sarah (pronounced Sureh in my family). When researching my ggm Sarah using soundex, I got several hits with the first name Sore.
