October 1921

Apparently, my Mommom was actually born Tema Kuperstein. When she applied for Naturalization in 1953, her “name changed by order of the court as part of the Naturalization” from Tema to Thelma. She departed Antwerp on the ship named Zeeland and arrived at Ellis Island on October 9, 1921 at the age of 11.

Tema “Thelma” Kuperstein immigrates the the United States.
