Finding my families "actual" last name
Posted by: Jennifer Lian (ID *****2971) Date: November 30, 2006 at 12:14:23

Our name was changed at Ellis Island and we do have a certificate but I've been told that the spelling of our original last name is wrong and have heard a variety of different spellings from different family members. Sadly, no one really knows. Anyone have any advice on how best to determine the actual spelling? Our last name now is Lian. I have heard a variety of spelllings but most frequently, Ilyian.
