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

All the mistakes and incompetence in the world could not a change a
person's name against his will.  Why is that so difficult to get?   The
US did not care what name you used, that is what people are trying to
get thru to all the myth-clingers.  Can our current IRS with all its
incompetence and errors change your name on your tax form such that that
will be your new name??  That is what you are saying.

I did not say that anyone wrote a name down.  What I said was that
people make mistakes, especially when overwhelmed, over worked  and
maybe not paying strict attention.  Name tag or no, manifest or no,
questions or no, mistakes were made, and names INADVERTENTLY were
changed.  You might want to read Dahn Cukier's response.
What I don't understand is why people blame the discrepancies on
points of embarkation, faulty manifests, whatever, but NEVER at Ellis
