Your documents appear to all contain the original name, as it appeared in Europe. Which is what we have all been stating.
Just imagine a ship with 200 or 300 immigrants arriving. These immigrants would be processed in a few hours most of the time. Now we can see that it would have been absurd for officials at the port of entry to even think about changing immigrants names. It was NOT part of the process.
As someone else pointed out name changes occurred AFTER the immigrant began life in their new homeland.
It is not a matter of the reader deciding which one is right. It is a matter of understanding the history of the immigration process.
The historical fact is no names were ever changed at a port of entry. Your theory is absolutely incorrect and only adds to this myth. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/ellis-island-isnt-b...
