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

Haven’t nailed down the exact name on the early 20th century Passenger List yet, but I suspect it was GOLDSTEIN. GOLDSTEN was listed in the 1920 Census. It became GONSALVES at a later date, and even later became GORDON -- all in the same generation! Different children have used each of the latter two! And none of the changes was made “at Ellis Island”! :-)

Imagine the descendants doing their genealogies 100 yrs. from now!
