Every place I have looked I have found different ages for my
grandfather. After I translated the Hebrew on his tombstone I determined
his age was 72, his death certificate said 68. On the manifest >from Ellis
Island in 1913 his age was 40, yet on his second trip only seven years
later in 1920 his age was listed as 56. On the 1920 census his age was 45
and ten years later on the 1930 census his age was 52.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Lying about age #ukraine

Lillian Siegfried <lillians@...>
 

Many young women lied about their age (making themselves younger) because
they hoped it would make it easier for them to find a husband when they
applied to come to the U.S. My mothers friend >from her home town did that
and then had a hard time collecting social security when she reached her
correct age.

In the "Memoire Juive en Alsace" by AA Fraenckel on page 368 n re:
Keyle LEVY and David BRUNSCHWIG engagement of 10 August 1747 in
Hegenheim, there is the following statement in French: "Le mariage
aura lieu d'ici Roch 'Hodech Teveth 5507" (translated to "the
marriage will occur ...) Can anyone let me know when they think the
wedding occured?

My mother went through over 70 years of her life, as two years older than
she was.
How did we find out? One day when we were at the cemetery for her sister's
yorzeit, she said "Don't put the year of my virth on my tombstone." I asked
"why?" and she answered "How would it look two sisters burried near each
other with the same year of birth." It was then that we figured out, she had
taken her sister's year of birth, and even changed a document in hebrew to
match it, so she could travel >from Palestine to America by herself in 1922,
being 18 and not 16. Since that was the year of birth on her entrance into
the states, she continued with that year of birth all her life (97 years).

I believe that we may be researching the same family.

If you have information about how to contact Aaron, please send private

Thank you.
