I have a situation in my father's side in which the son of my
Grandfather's brother lied about where he was born.
His draft registration, US naturalization, and various census records
indicate he was born in Strasbourg, Alsace Lorraine when in fact he was
born in Gross Gluscha , Volhynia.
The only record that gives his actual birth location was the ships
record which indicates he was born in Russia.
He also changed his name to Ross and began using his middle name Edward
instead of Adolph.
These records could really throw someone beginning their research now a
real curve ball.
I've recently discovered that his paternal great Grandmother was born in
Kriegsfeld, Germany which is not all that far from the Alsace Lorraine
area of France.
