No one's name was shortened or changed at Ellis Island by any clerk. The guy is wrong unless he can show the original manifest showing the old name crossed out and a new name written in. His religious qualifications have nothing to do with his repeating an erroneous story that never happened because the multilingual clerks were firbidden to do that at ALL US Ports of Entry. He could have however shortened it himself the minute he stepped into the city. Please do not perpetuate the biggest myth in genealogy.
