Re: "His name was changed at Ellis Island" #names

Peter,
 
Well said. To say that name changes at Ellis  Island NEVER happened is as wrong as it is to say that all name changes were the result of immigration officials willfully changing names.  With millions of people coming in--Jewish and non Jewish--sometimes they (official, translator, immigrant) just simply got it wrong, or different.
