Thread Name: BS: Trump
Subject: RE: BS: Trump
Research has revealed that a Trump ancestor is respondsible for changing the East European name of Drumpf to Trump.
What kind of character does the name Donald Drumpf portray anyway?
Drumpf tower, Drumpf Golf Course.
I can't criticize. My last name has been changed twice.
Once by an Ellis Island impatient employee and once again by me for my kids to simplify spelling.
Contrary to that family myth, no one employed at Ellis Island changed any names. People did that for themselves. There is not a single piece of documentary evidence that shows name changes occurred there. --mudelf historian
