My family story is that my great grandfather bought papers under the name Fishel Meyer to avoid the Czarist conscription.  He came to the US in 1884.  According to family information our original family name was Perchik, and that he had two sisters (1/2) who also came to the US.  One sister has living descendants that match me on DNA as expected based on our original name being Perchik.
