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.
Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland. Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.

Brian first recognized his desire to explore the unknown at a young age. Growing up in Staten Island, New York, Brian often took note of abandoned buildings recessed within the woods near his home during Sunday drives with his parents. They called to him, sparking his imagination and his curiosity. Alone or with friends, Brian began exploring the old and abandoned buildings, despite the countless rumors of what may have happened within their walls. Tall tales of Satanic activity, missing children or ghostly sightings were often told, but instead of deterring Brian from his new found hobby, this element of fear and danger only served to add to the allure for him. Since then, he's been looking into the darkness and exploring the dangers that come with the decay of civilization's footprint. Expanding his experiences in urban exploration to include paranormal investigation, there are few places he will not go.
Brian is the Tech Specialist on Haunted Collector, responsible for the implementation and use of all the gadgets and gear. Best known for mixing old and new techniques of investigating, he often finds himself doing the physical tasks, such as crawling under houses and up into attics. He also serves as second in command of the team and helps manage the deployment of the crew itself.

Fresh out the federal pen after serving a bid for armed robbery, Anthony Padmore is whisked to the beautiful island of Anguilla as a reward for keeping his mouth shut. His adoptive brothers have prepared a week of celebration fit for King Solomon himself, but while frolicking on the beach, basking in his newfound freedom, he runs into the stunning Soldada Andrews…
Soldada Andrews is fresh out of Law School with an exciting position as an Assistant District Attorney. She has treated herself with a trip to Anguilla to celebrate her achievement. While walking on the beach, she runs into the mesmerizing Anthony Padmore. Her attraction to him is immediate, but she senses something lurking beneath the surface that suggests he would be better off left alone. However, he is too irresistible, so she opts to engage in an island fling. Unfortunately, a passion-filled night boils over into a morning filled with unexpectant emotions and a list of questions better left unanswered, as it is revealed they reside in the same city.
Back in the States, Soldada and Anthony discover their lives are inextricably entwined, for her first assignment as an Assistant District Attorney is to bring down Anthony and the whole Padmore clan. The Padmores, led by the sinister, charismatic, Roland Padmore, are involved in high-level, white-collar crime where extortion, racketeering, and murder are the rules of business. Soon, Anthony and Soldada must answer some tough questions, foremost: What to do when you find yourself in a situation where betrayal is the only remedy for survival?
