Yes, I sent for his original SS application, but it was $27, not $39 -- perhaps I did not ask for the right form?
I also found my Grandfather's Father's name on the Ellis Island records and at first was confused because my Grandfather's name was Mitu Trifunoff, but his father's name was listed as Trifun Miteff.I guess this is an example of patronymic way of naming children . . .
Do you, or does anybody know if all the children in a family were named thus?Would they all have their father's first name as their last name?If not, then it would make searching for siblings a very difficult job.This post may not be the right place to ask this question, but I am relatively new to my search and I have a lot of questions!!!
