Re: Using Wife's Surname For Immigration #general #names


I struggled for years to locate my great grandfather's immigration info.  I suspect it was the new wife who purchased the tickets under her own [former] name, the registrar garbled the ages and names of the children, putting the husband's given name as a child and so on.  Her son by her first marriage used a variety of surnames, finally settling on one that was 'unknown' in our family.  But I eventually found him, and my g-grandfather.
