Re: Alternate names for Mollie Schiff #names

The 1890's can be a tough decade to search for manifests.  Information varied by shipping line.  Some may list little data, not even the town of birth.

The handwriting on the manifests can be difficult to read which causes transcription errors.  It is possible her first and/or surname can be transcribed to the index with an odd spelling.

As far as learning what her original first name was, have you checked if it is inscribed on her tombstone?
