Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.
There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island. Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.
When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying. When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States. He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored. Finally the Times responded. They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue. The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story. He located about half a dozen. After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.

This edition of Sunday Evening Shout! In The Basement With JaVonne, brings you gospel music, along with a discussion with a man ever American should know. Kenneth B. Morris, Jr. is descended from two of the most important names in American history: he is the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and the great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington. His life until the year 2007 could be described as distinguished yet decisively disengaged from his lineage until Providence called.
Today, Ken’s career and life path are driven by a mission to end human trafficking and all forms of servitude with a clear focus on the restoration of the dignity and well being of its victims. He could not have predicted that one day he would so fully embrace and be defined by the characteristics that so closely defined his famous ancestors.

Deputies Making a Change (DMAC) is a youth mentoring program that addresses the incarceration rate among young children. This program targets those who are failing in school, at risk of being incarcerated, or have problems with authority. This program will consist of tutoring, physical fitness, life skills, sessions with mentors, video instruction and many other tools will also be utilized.
The main objective is to enhance the thinking ability of the neighborhood youth, as well as promote positive behavior among at-risk children and as a result produce better students that are eager to advance their education rather than participate in criminal activity. Seven core values will be utilized to ensure the structure of the program, discipline, education, accountability, commitment, motivation, respect for authority, and self reliance. These values are designed to manage the child’s behavior, while implementing discipline and education.
