"If Your Name Was Changed at Ellis Island" by Ellen Levine answered many of the questions that I could not. She sent me back a glowing thank you note, and told me her teacher loved her book report on this book. Eventually, I picked up the book for myself. Guess what? For many first-, second- or third-generation Americans this book answers a lot of questions from that nearly forgotten era, and of that generation of people who helped America as they helped themselves. This is a great testimony to Ms. Levine and illustrator Wayne Parmenter to their well-planned book.

Next I will attempt to wipe out the "my great-grandmother was a Cherokee princess" fairy tale. Wish me luck.
If you want to know more about the myth of names being changed at Ellis Island, just Google it. There is a lot of information out there. Unfortunately, this books was written before that research was done.

Nice. Easy to understand. This would be a good gift for school-age children who are studying early US history. Or for anyone doing genealogy research.Published on November 20, 2013 by Charlotte F.

Interesting to learn how names got changed to simpler "American" names. A lot of names were changed upon entering the US by misunderstanding of other languages.Published on January 8, 2013 by susie Q
