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.

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.
Our discussion tonight concerns a very important issue. It is a topic that all family members and friends need to hear, discuss and share with other church members. I urge each and every one of you listening to repost and share this show with everyone you know and don’t know. My careful examination of Christianity practiced in America shows that the body of Christ has been infected with a deadly disease. A contagious doctrine has been injected into the mindset of modern day Christians. A new Christian theology has arisen. A new Babylonian ideology has replaced the spiritual gospel of Jesus with a doctrine of greed and lust. It is a theology based upon the principles of economic prosperity and capitalism. Spiritual salvation has been replaced with aspirations of becoming rich and acquiring the highest degree of financial prosperity possible by any means necessary.
Tonight we will explore the phenomenal uprising of he prosperity gospel. We will also examine the legitimacy of the prosperity gospel’s twin brother known as new covenant mandatory tithes. Does the bible substantiate the prosperity gospel taught by men such as Creflo Dollar, Kenneth Copeland and many other famous Christian preachers? Is a 10 per cent mandatory tithe commanded by God under the new covenant? This will be a two or three part series. At the end of this series no questions will be unanswered. The prosperity gospel has become the predominant Christian theology embraced by most American Christians. Those that follow prosperity preachers such as Creflo Dollar have been indoctrinated to believe Christians are obligated under the new covenant to pay a 10 percent mandatory tithe of money.
