Re: "His name was changed at Ellis Island #usa #general


Families often changed their names or at least the spellings. I found this on both sides of my mother's family.  Zlates became Slatas and Sanktin became Sancton.  The Zlates change came some time after 1925, given its use on my mother's birth certificate. I am not certain when Sancton was changed.
