It is not unusual when immigrating to a new country for a person to change their name.

Did you or a close relative change your name? Do you have a story in your family about your ancestors changing their name?


One thought on “Discussion Question: Immigration and Changing Names

  1. Our family did have a name change. When they were in Nova Scotia, they were know as the Levesque’s. When they immigrated to the US, they changed their last name to Bishop. Not entirely sure why, but it sure does make researching the family tree fun!
