Kathryn Kanarek James

My great uncle (from Janow) changed his surname from Wang to Warren when he was naturalized in 1916 (last page of naturalization record). The children of my great grandparents came to EllisIsland under their mother’s maiden name, Singer, but became Kanarek (their father’s surname) in the US census. In Galicia, their parents had a religious marriage, but not a civil marriage. My mother’s father, grandfather and uncles changed their surname from Siduche/Seduch at Ellis Island to Sader. Some people changed their surnames at local courts.
