Re: Trouble finding relatives in Ellis Island Passenger Lists #records #names


In my case, my grandfather immigrated from Ukraine in 1919. His name, Solomon Swerlick was noted on the record as Solomon Shlakman. It took a long time to validate the was the same person. Carelessness, language barrier, or simply not caring, is a fairly common theme.
