Surnames: Gomberg Hamburg
Did anyone really change their names FROM Gomberg TO Hamburg? I think its universally the other way around or it just wasn't changed during immigration.

My great-grandfather Efroim Hamburg immigrated from that area of Ukraine (Russian Empire) to Philadelphia in 1906. He changed his name to Frank Gomberg. However he died shortly after his only child was born and thus I know next to nothing about him.

Does anyone know of a connection he may have?
