Posted on Feb 16 – Genealogy Fact:   No, your ancestors names were not changed
at Ellis Island.  Names were written down in a ship manifest prior to the arrival in New York.  Registry clerks just checked the name.  Changes to Anglicized names were generally done later by your ancestor, often during the naturalization process.

We look forward to seeing you at our Local History Programs across Delaware County and throughout the year.
