Happiness, No Matter His Age

My grandfather immigrated to America when he was young. From all the stories I’ve heard, the year was 1912, when he was either 11, going on 12 or 8 going on 9. I’m convinced I have the correct birth certificate showing he was born 1901, but there still persist stories he was born 1904.

I can’t find any record of him coming across at Ellis Island anywhere in a +/- 10 year period. It’s possible that he came in through Canada, where, supposedly, he had a sister and brother-in-law living. I don’t know how to search the Canadian records yet.

Here’s a picture of my grandfather and my grandmother on their wedding day. He was either 24, or 27. She was 17.
