Likewise, Greenfield was most likely originally Grunfeld or Gruenfeld.

When your family members traveled to the US, they would have been listed on the ship passenger lists under their old surnames, and not the Americanized versions of them. The first names would most likely have been the Yiddish versions of their Hebrew names.
