Title: Abig / Blaisuis
Description: This question is about Frederick (Fred) Blaisuis (also spelled Blaisius) born abt 1888 in NY. Sometime between 1900 and 1905 Fred's (and his brother Louis) last name change from Abig to Blaisius. On the 1905 NY State census, when the new last name first appears, he is living with his mother Teckla Abig and his brother Louis. It does not appear that his father was deceased or that his mother remarried. Can anyone offers and suggestions as to why this might have happened or where to look to figure out why his name changed? It is a family mystery no one can seem to answer.
