      Agreed. Before the time of Social Security, the notion of "positive
      identification" was laughable by today's standards of photo IDs, bar codes
      and computerized cross reference. Anything was possible.
      Research? Whatever you find. There is no formula on this one.

      I think, this is a strictly family matter and noone will be able to help. I
      also doubt there will be any answer. It happened. That's all.
      But, one can develop all kinds of theories.

      I return once again to the Pros here at Slovak-Roots. I am seeking a
      direction to follow in searching for the origin of Our Family name being

      As I understand it,My Grand Father wishing to have a more American
      sounding name changed his from "Haluska" to "Halusker".

      This I have heard through Family History and the fact that all documents
      I have for My Great Grand Father are for Haluska up to and including his
      Death. My Grand Father's BC also has Haluska as a Surname. At some
      point in time he began using Halusker.

      This could have been done when he recieved his SS# became Employed with
      the Erie Rail Road or some time before he Married My Grand Mother. All
      list Halusker and not Haluska.

      What do you guys think? Could he have done this on his own or could this
      be a legal thing through the courts.

      Charles Halusker Jr. Resided in Garfield NJ at least until 1934 when he
      Married in Cliffside Park.

      How does one begin this search?
